Former Longhorns Ricky Williams and Bob McKay are among 87 players on the ballot for the 2015 induction class in the College Football Hall of Fame. Twenty-five coaches are also on the ballot, which was announced Wednesday by the National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame.
McKay, an offensive tackle, was a consensus first-team All-American in 1969 and helped the Longhorns to a national championship and unbeaten season.
Williams, the 1998 Heisman Trophy winner and two-time unanimous first-team All-American, finished his career as the NCAA’s all-time leading rusher. He was not inducted last year, his first on the ballot.
Here’s a look at the entire ballot.
The announcement of the 2015 class will be made Jan. 9, three days prior to the College Football Playoff championship game.
