Bert Jones on Saturday will return to the field where in the early 1970s he threw for more than 3,000 yards and became LSU’s first consensus All-American QB before being selected second overall in the 1973 NFL draft.
The LSU quarterback great was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame this year, and the university where he played for three seasons will honor him during its game against No. 23 Ole Miss.
The Tigers will recognize him on the field of Tiger Stadium during the first timeout of the first quarter. Jones is one of 14 inductees in the Class of 2016 and the ninth LSU player to be inducted in the College Football Hall of Fame, the last before Jones being running back Charles Alexander in the Class of 2012.
