Pac-12 well represented in 2014 HOF class
By Chantel Jennings
On Thursday, the 2014 College Football Hall of Fame Class was announced. Unsurprisingly, the Pac-12 was well represented among the 2014 honorees.
Of the 14 players selected, three were Pac-12 alumni: former USC offensive tackle Tony Boselli, former Stanford running back Darrin Nelson and former UCLA quarterback John Sciarra.
Former Oregon coach Mike Bellotti was one of the two coaches selected for the honor. The other was former Appalachian State coach Jerry Moore.
The 16-man class will be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame on Dec. 9 at the 57th National Football Foundation annual awards dinner in New York City.
