Wisconsin's Ron Dayne, Nebraska's Tommie Frazier, Ohio State's Orlando Pace and Michigan State's Percy Snow have been inducted into the 2013 College Football Hall of Fame, the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame announced on Tuesday.

Dayne concluded his career with 7,125 career rushing yards, becoming the first player to reach the 7,000-yard mark in FBS history in his 1999 Heisman Trophy campaign. Dayne led the Badgers to back-to-back Rose Bowl titles in 1999 and 2000, and was the Big Ten's first three-time rushing champion in league history. Dayne becomes the eighth Badger to be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.

Frazier guided Nebraska to back-to-back perfect national championship seasons in 1994 and 1995. A consensus first-team All-American in 1995, Frazier led Nebraska to four consecutive bowl appearances in his career, and set a conference record with a 33-3 overall career mark as a starter. Frazier becomes the 16th Cornhusker to enter the College Football Hall of Fame.

Pace was a two-time unanimous First-Team All-American (1995, 1996), and the first player in history to repeat as the Lombardi Trophy winner. Pace did not allow a sack during his final two seasons, being named the 1996 Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year. Pace was chosen with the No. 1 overall pick in the 1997 NFL Draft, and becomes the 24th Buckeye to be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.

Snow was the first player in college football history to win the Butkus and Lombardi trophies in the same season, leading the Spartans' "Gang Green" defense in tackles for three consecutive seasons. Snow helped the Spartans to the 1987 Big Ten title and a 1988 Rose Bowl victory. The Spartans' linebacker becomes the seventh in team history to enter the College Football Hall of Fame.
