IRVING, Texas — Kansas State coach Bill Snyder is among the 81 coaches and players up for election to the College Football Hall of Fame.

The National Football Foundation on Wednesday released the ballot for the class that will be announced Jan. 9. Former Heisman Trophy winners Rashaan Salaam of Colorado, Ricky Williams of Texas and Eric Crouch of Nebraska are among the 75 players from the Football Bowl Subdivision on the ballot.

Oklahoma linebacker Brian Bosworth and Southern California receiver Keyshawn Johnson are also up for election.

The NFF tweaked its rules for eligibility a few years ago to allow active coaches, such as Snyder, to be eligible for the election after they turn 75.

The 75-year-old Snyder is in his 23rd season at Kansas State. He has a record of 183-91-1.
