Cincinnati Bengals nose tackle Tim Krumrie brings down Los Angeles Raiders' Marcus Allen by the face mask during the first quarter of an AFC playoff game on  Jan. 13, 1991, in Los Angeles.

Former University of Wisconsin nose guard Tim Krumrie was elected on Friday to the College Football Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2016.

Krumrie will be the 10th Wisconsin player to be enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame and the first defensive player to be honored. Four Wisconsin coaches, including current athletics director Barry Alvarez, have been elected to the College Football Hall of Fame as well.

Krumrie led the Badgers in tackles each of his four seasons at UW, making 444 career tackles, the most ever by a defensive lineman. His 276 solo tackles remain the Badgers' career record. He was a consensus first-team All-America selection in 1981, a Walter Camp All-American in 1982 and went on to earn All-Big Ten honors three times.

Joining Krumrie in the 2016 class are Marlin Briscoe (QB, Nebraska Omaha), Derrick Brooks (LB, Florida State), Tom Cousineau (LB, Ohio State), Randall Cunningham (P/QB, UNLV), Troy Davis (TB, Iowa State), William Fuller (DT, North Carolina), Bert Jones (QB, LSU), Pat McInally (TE, Harvard), Herb Orvis (DE, Colorado), Bill Royce (LB, Ashland), Mike Utley (OG, Washington State), Scott Woerner (DB, Georgia), Rod Woodson (DB, Purdue), Bill Bowes (coach, New Hampshire) and Frank Girardi (Lycoming, coach)

The 2016 class will be honored at the NFF Annual Awards Dinner held at the Waldorf Astoria in New York on Dec. 6.
