Ogden and Bedsole are part of 14 players to be elected to the College Football Hall of Fame along with three coaches.

The 2012 College Football Hall of Fame Class was announced today and both USC and UCLA saw two of its alums named among this year's inductees: USC's Hal Bedsole and UCLA's Jonathan Ogden.

Bedsole, 70, played split end for the Trojans from 1961 to 1963 as a JUCO transfer. He was a consensus All-American in 1962, a two-time first team All Pac-8 selection and helped the Trojans win a national championship in 1962. He led the Trojans in receptions and scoring in 1961 and 1962. He finished his career with 82 catches for 1,717 yards and 20 touchdowns. He is a member of the USC Athletics Hall of Fame and had a brief career in the NFL with the Minnesota Vikings from 1964 to 1966.

Ogden, 37, dominated at UCLA just like he did at the professional level. Ogden piled up every award imaginable for an offensive lineman as he collected the Outland Trophy, Morris Trophy and UPI Lineman of the Year in 1995. He helped lead the Bruins to a Pac-10 title in 1993. Ogden got off to a great start as a Bruin, being named a Freshman All-America by The Sporting News and won the John Boncheff Jr. Memorial Award as UCLA's top freshman. Ogden started all four years and is one of only eight players at UCLA to have his jersey (no. 79) retired. Ogden went on to become a nine-time All-Pro with the Baltimore Ravens before retiring in 2007.
