The 2012 College Football Hall of Fame class will be announced Tuesday.

The 2012 College Football Hall of Fame class will be announced on Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. and you can watch it live right here on the National Football Foundation's YouTube channel. The announcement can also be viewed on ESPN3.com.

Some of the candidates are local guys, like former Rice Owls quarterback Tommy Kramer who played for the team from 1973-76. Kramer was named an All-American in '76. Also, former Texas A&M Aggies head coach R.C. Slocum, who led the Aggies to more wins than any coach in the university's history.

Slocum is a native of Orange, Texas and attended college at McNeese State, now a Southland Conference school. The Aggies won 123 games under Slocum.

Slocum never had a losing season and won four conference championships, including the Big 12 title in 1998 and two Big 12 South Championships in '97 and '98. He also helped the Aggies become the first school in the Southwest Conference history to post three consecutive perfect conference seasons while actually going four consecutive seasons without a conference loss.

Here is a list of all candidates in this year's class.
