UK's Couch elected to College Hall of Fame

Jan. 9—Former Kentucky All-American quarterback Tim Couch has been elected to the College Football Hall of Fame, the National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame announced Monday afternoon on ESPN.

Couch, who played for the Wildcats from 1996-98, was a record-setting signal-caller in UK coach Hal Mumme's "Air Raid" offense and helped guide the program to some of its best moments on the gridiron. He'll be inducted at the annual National Football Foundation Awards Dinner on Dec. 10 in Las Vegas.
