  • Charles Woodson on the red carpet of the NFL honors night at the Wortham Theater Center on Saturday Feb. 4 2017 in Houston

Woodson is the only player who played primarily on defense to win the Heisman Trophy when the cornerback won the award and later helped the Wolverines win a share of the national championship.

The National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame announced jointly made the announcement Monday morning.

Dave Dickenson, who led the University of Montana to its first NCAA Division I-AA national championship in 1995, is among 13 players and coaches who will be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame this year.

Woodson recorded 18 interceptions during his three-year stint at MI, and was drafted fourth overall by the Oakland Raiders during the 1998 NFL Draft.

The 2018 class will be enshrined at the 61st annual NFF Awards Dinner on December 4 at the New York Hilton Midtown hotel. Taylor was a Huskers center and left guard from 1994-'97.

SpaceX now can look forward to its next major test for the year - launching its huge heavy-duty rocket for the first time ever. The codename is basically all we know about it - SpaceX couldn't even show every step of the launch, like it typically does.

He now resides in Atlanta where he is a partner with SterlingSeacrest Partners, an insurance and risk management company, and also works as a television football game analyst with the SEC Network and ESPN.

A star in the National Football League with Oakland and Green Bay, Woodson will be the 31st MI player inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Prior to his retirement in 2015, Beamer was the winningest active coach in FBS history at the time of his retirement, having tallied an impressive career record of 238-121-2 at Virginia Tech.

Taylor had his No. 67 jersey retired by the Huskers in 1998. The class included 1997 Heisman Trophy victor Charles Woodson of MI, which split the '97 national championship with Taylor's final Husker team.

Frank Beamer and Matt Stinchcomb will join Mack Brown in participating in the coin toss on the field during the championship game.
