Former Arizona State Sun Devils quarterback Jake Plummer and former ASU head coach Dennis Erickson were selected for induction into the College Football Hall of Fame on Monday.
Plummer was a four-year starting quarterback at ASU from 1993-96. He guided the Sun Devils to the 1996 Pac-10 title and their second (and most recent) Rose Bowl appearance in his senior season. He was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals and went on to lead the Cardinals to their first playoff appearance in Arizona.
