LET'S GO!!!! Great news today as SportsCenter has broken the news that EA Sports is bringing back one of their most popular games: NCAA Football.
It's been 7 years since EA Sports dropped their NCAA Football game because of Ed O'bannon's lawsuit against the NCAA for selling their likeness without compensation. For the gamers out there this is like winning the lottery.
Now the question is who makes the cover of NCAA Football 21? The last time the game was in production it had Michigan's Denard "Shoelace" Robinson on the cover. My bet is Heisman Trophy winner Devonta Smith getting the cover honors.
Most appearances by school: Michigan (3), USC (3), Florida (2), Texas (2), Alabama (2)
Appearances by position: Quarterbacks (12), running backs/fullbacks (5), wide receivers (4), defensive players (2), mascots (1)
