As wild as it sounds, Woodson's collegiate career was as impressive as his professional résumé, and Sunday it was announced that the former Michigan Wolverine had been named to the College Football Hall of Fame's class of 2018.

Beamer took over the Virginia Tech program in 1987 and led the Hokies to a BCS championship game appearance in 1999.

The announcement of the 2018 Class was made Monday live on ESPN's SportsCenter in Atlanta, the site of the College Football Playoff (CFP) National Championship, which will be played Monday night at Mercedes-Benz Stadium between Alabama and Georgia.

The other members are Trevor Cobb (Rice), Kerry Collins (Penn State), Dave Dickenson (Montana), Dana Howard (Illinois), Paul Palmer (Temple), Matt Stinchcomb (Georgia), Aaron Taylor (Nebraska), and former coach Mel Tjeerdsma (Austin College and Northwestern Missouri State).
