Aaron Taylor is one of the all-time pipeline pancaking greats and now he has the distinction of being a College Football Hall of Famer.

The 1997 Outland Trophy winner is the only Husker in school history to earn All-America honors at two different positions.

A consensus All-American as a junior, Taylor switched back to his money spot at left guard for his senior season, helping the Big Red to a third national championship in four years while being selected as a unanimous first-team All-American.

He also recorded a then-school record of 137 pancake blocks, good for 378 in his final three seasons paving the way for one of the nation’s best rushing attacks.

The 2018 induction ceremony is Dec. 4, 2018 at the 61st Annual Awards Dinner.
