Is There a Football Equivalent of the Hosket Family?

I was just reading that there were three generations of Hoskets who were varsity basketball players at Ohio State. Bill Jr, class of ‘68, was on the Gold Medal US team in the Mexico City Olympics and was a seldom-used reserve on the 1970 NBA champion New York Knicks (but he earned a ring).  He won a Big Ten title at Ohio State, as did his dad.  Bill’s son was a walk-on in the late 1990s.

So: any football families with three generations of varsity players?  How about even two generations where both father and son were on Big Ten champs?

I feel like I am blanking out on some obvious choice here; but, on the other hand, maybe not.
