TWO ACC FOOTBALL PLAYERS MAKE HALL OF FAME

The newest class of the College Football Hall of Famers spent an event-packed weekend celebrating with the South Bend community as the highest honor in college football was bestowed upon them.

Two ACC players from current ACC schools were in the class of 2009 which included Troy Aikman, John Cooper and Lou Holtz.
