Randy Cross, a former UCLA offensive lineman, was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame, one of 12 players and two coaches who will be inducted this year, the National Football Foundation announced Thursday.

Cross played three seasons at UCLA, from 1973-75, helping the Bruins win the 1976 Rose Bowl. He was voted a first-team All-American his senior season. He played 13 seasons in the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers, winning three Super Bowls.

Cross is the 13th Bruin to be elected to the Hall, joining former UCLA players Troy Aikman, Gary Beban, Kenny Easley, Tom Fears, Bill Kilmer, Donn Moomaw, Jerry Robinson, Al Sparlis, and Kenny Washington. Former UCLA coaches Terry Donahue, Tommy Prothro and Red Sanders also are in the Hall.
