Three former Iowa Football greats appear on the latest College Football Hall of Fame ballot. Andre Tippett, Jared DeVries and Robert Gallery. The announcement of new inductees has been set for early 2021.

More than 12,000 NFF members and current Hall of Famers’ votes will be tabulated and submitted to the NFF’s Honors Courts, which will deliberate and select the class. The FBS Honors Court, chaired by NFF Board Member and College Football Hall of Famer Archie Griffin from Ohio State, and the Divisional Honors Court, chaired by former Marshall head coach, longtime athletics director and NFF Board Member Jack Lengyel, include an elite and geographically diverse pool of athletic administrators, Hall of Famers and members of the media.

Here are the capsule the NFF wrote up for the Iowa players:

Andre Tippett, Iowa-Defensive End – 1981 consensus First Team All-American who led Hawkeyes to 1982 Rose Bowl berth, its first bowl game since 1959…Two-time First Team All-Big Ten performer, leading Iowa to 1981 Big Ten championship…Holds Iowa record for TFL yardage (153 yards/20 TFL).
