2011 College Football Hall Of Fame Class: UCLA's Jonathan Ogden, USC's Mark Carrier Left Out

The College Football Hall of Fame announced its 2011 class on Tuesday, and among the finalists left on the outside looking in were former UCLA Bruin offensive lineman Jonathan Ogden and former USC Trojan defensive back Mark Carrier. The Hall elected 14 former players, headlined by Deoin Sanders and Eddie George, and two head coaches, Fisher DeBerry, the longtime head man at Air Force, and former Michigan coach Lloyd Carr. The 16 inductees were selected from a group of 88 finalists, which included Ogden and Carrier.

Ogden was a standout at UCLA from 1992-1995, capturing All-American honors in his senior season. In 1995, he also won the Outland Trophy, the award given annually to the top interior lineman in the nation. Ogden went on to a stellar career in the NFL, making 11 Pro Bowls in his 12 years with the Baltimore Ravens.

Carrier was a two-time All-American at USC, in 1988 and 1989, and won the Jim Thorpe Award as the nation's top defensive back in 1989. Carrier had seven interceptions in his senior season in 1989, then went on to intercept 32 passes in his 11 years in the NFL, making three Pro Bowls with the Chicago Bears.

Former Trojan Hal Bedsole was also a finalist. The tight end was part of the 1962 USC National Championship team, and was the first USC player to amass over 200 receiving yards in one game. He later played three years in the NFL with the Minnesota Vikings.
