Nebraska great Aaron Taylor was honored for his upcoming induction into the College Hall of Fame with a National Football Foundation Hall of Fame On-Campus Salute, presented by Fidelity Investments. The Salute will took place on Saturday, Oct. 20, during the Huskers’ game against Minnesota.
The NFF Hall of Fame On-Campus Salute program, which began with the inaugural College Football Hall of Fame Class in 1951, has become a hallowed tradition, and to this day the singular events remain the first of numerous activities in each inductee’s Hall of Fame experience. During the NFF Hall of Fame On-Campus Salutes, each inductee returns to his alma mater to accept a Hall of Fame plaque that will remain on permanent display at the institution. The events take place on the field during a home game.
Taylor was a two-time first-team All-American as a junior and senior, and is the only Husker to earn first-team All-America honors at two different positions. He also captured the 1997 Outland Trophy as the nation's most outstanding interior lineman.
Taylor was also part of three Nebraska national championship teams. He is the 18th Nebraska player elected to the College Football Hall of Fame. Nebraska also has six former coaches in the Hall.
