The College Football Hall of Fame’s newest class includes an unusual member: the Goodyear Blimp.

The blimp will become the hall’s first non-human, named on Monday as an honorary inductee for its contribution to the way fans view the game.

“College players and fans know that when the Goodyear Blimp shows up, it’s a big game,” said Archie Manning, the National Football Foundation chairman. “Its presence is intrinsically known and tied to the traditions that make college football great.”

The blimp first hovered over a college game at the 1955 Rose Bowl when network executives wanted aerial coverage of the match-up between USC and Ohio State. Since then, it has participated in the broadcast of more than 2,000 games.

“For me, playing under the blimp felt like a payoff for the hard work that goes into game day,” said Kirk Herbstreit, the former Ohio State quarterback who is now a television analyst. “So I’m excited it’s getting recognized for its contributions.”
