Former BYU tight end Gordon Hudson will be enshrined this weekend into the College Football Hall of Fame.

Hudson will be joined by 23 others who will be honored in South Bend, Ind.

At BYU, Hudson tied the NCAA record for receptions by a tight end in a single season with 67. As a junior, he was a unanimous All-Western Athletic Conference and Consensus All-America selection. In his senior year, Hudson again earned Consensus All-America honors, along with fellow Hall of Fame member Steve Young, becoming the first two consensus All-America selections in BYU history. Hudson still holds NCAA records for most passes caught per game by a tight end (5.4), most career yards per game by a tight end (75.3) and most yards in a game by a tight end (259 vs. Utah).

This weekend's festivities include a golf tournament, a parade, a fireworks show, a pep rally and a youth football clinic, culminating with the enshrinement dinner and show on Saturday night.

Besides Hudson, others who will be enshrined into the College Football Hall of Fame this weekend include New Mexico State's Pervis Atkins, Notre Dame's Tim Brown, Arizona's Chuck Cecil, Auburn's Ed Dyas, West Virginia's Major Harris, Harvard's William Lewis, Alabama's Woodrow Lowe, Stanford's Ken Margerum, Texas' Steve McMichael, Ohio State's Chris Spielman, Iowa's Larry Station, Georgia Tech's Pat Swilling, Miami's Gino Torreta, Penn State's Curt Warner, Nebraska's Grant Wistrom, Syracuse's Dick MacPherson, and USC and UNLV coach John Robinson.
