The hall said Tuesday that all ties for the 25th spot in the semifinals also advance.

Owens, who played for the Eagles in 2004 and '05, has been a finalist the last two years.

This is the sixth straight year that Lynch has made it to the group of semifinalists, beginning with his first year of eligibility in 2013.
