HEISMAN CROUCH

NU quarterback Eric Crouch catches a 63-yard touchdown pass from Mike Stuntz in front of Oklahoma's Kory Klein, sending the Memorial Stadium crowd into a frenzy and helping the Husker win 20-10. 

Former Husker stars Eric Crouch, Larry Jacobson and Zach Wiegert are on the ballot for the College Football Hall of Fame for 2020, the National Football Foundation announced Monday. 

Crouch, the 2001 Heisman Trophy winner and Millard North graduate, led the Huskers to the 2001 national title game in the Rose Bowl and is making his ninth appearance on the hall of fame ballot.

The option quarterback finished his Nebraska career as the NCAA record holder for rushing TDs by a signal caller and led NU to a 42-9 record and four bowl berths.

Jacobson was a consensus First Team All-American and Outland Trophy winner in 1971. The Huskers went 33-2-1 during his career and won back-to-back national titles. This marks the second time Jacobson has been on the ballot. 

Making his fifth appearance on the ballot, Wiegert helped lead Nebraska to the 1994 National Championship as a unanimous First Team All-American and winner of the Outland Trophy. 

The announcement of the 2020 class will be made in January in Santa Clara, California, ahead of the College Football Playoff.
