Schools with the Most College Football Hall of Fame Members (Part 1)

College Football Hall of Fame Member, Troy Aikman, Played Two Years Apiece For the Oklahoma Sooners and the UCLA Bruins

College Football Hall of Fame Member, Troy Aikman, Played Two Years Apiece For the Oklahoma Sooners and the UCLA Bruins

This post is so big, I had to split it up over two days – these are not just the schools with the most College Football Hall of Fame members – it’s every single member of the Hall, sorted by college and those colleges with the most members.

Here’s the bottom half, all schools with anywhere from one to 10 Hall of Famers, finishing off at the top with Washington and UCLA, who have 10 each.

Some members played for multiple schools and I have counted these players for each of their schools.

How about your team? Your school? Do they have a Hall of Famer? Maybe – 206 different colleges are represented. Take a look.

Tomorrow, things really get big when we run down the rest – all colleges with at least 11 Hall of Famers, finishing off at the top with a team that has 43. What school is that?

There are seven other schools with at least 20. Which ones?

Answers tomorrow in Part 2.
