The National Football Foundation released its ballot of candidates for the 2017 College Football Hall of Fame ballot.
The National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame announced Thursday the 2014 College Football Hall of Fame Class, and former Purdue star defensive tackle Dave Butz (1970-72) was one of 14 players honored. Former Penn State linebacker Shane Conlan (1983-86), who starred in Happy Valley before the Nittany Lions entered the Big Ten, also made the cut.
The National Football Foundation has released its 2014 College Football Hall of Fame ballot, and plenty of players with ties to Big Ten schools are up for election. In fact, among the 75 FBS players, there are 21 Big Ten players.
