NCAA Football 13 News Post




April 16, 2012 – Today, EA SPORTS announced former Heisman Trophy winner Barry Sanders (RB, Oklahoma State University), has been selected by fans to join the 2011 Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III (QB, Baylor University), on the cover of NCAA Football 13, which hits retail shelves on July 10. Sanders was selected by fans as part of the NCAA Football 13 My Heisman Cover Vote contest, which put the power into the hands of the fans to decide which college football legend would join Robert Griffin III on the cover of this year’s game.

The NCAA Football 13 My Heisman Cover Vote contest kicked off on March 12, with a competitive bracket-style tournament on the EA SPORTS NCAA Football Facebook page, pitting eight former Heisman Trophy winners in head-to-head matchups. During the three week-long tournament, fans had the power to choose which player would advance to the next round and get one step closer to gracing the cover alongside Robert Griffin III. Sanders pulled ahead of former University of Georgia running back Herschel Walker in the final round to earn the coveted honor of becoming the NCAA Football 13 cover athlete. Other former Heisman Trophy winners in contention included former University of Southern California running back Marcus Allen, former Boston College quarterback Doug Flutie, former Ohio State University running back Eddie George, former University of Michigan wide receiver Desmond Howard, former Florida State University quarterback Charlie Ward and former University of Houston quarterback Andre Ware.

Yeah your link is broken Dustin.

Here it is. And after reading the comments on Facebook, I really, really hate people who don't know what they're talking about.

Is it working now? I had issues getting it posted for a few minutes, but it's showing on my screen now.

Yours still isn't, but mine and the guy above me's are.

I see EA took off all the manufacturer logos on the ball, equipment, unis....

Also, that is probably one of NCAA's worst covers imo.

The ball is too big

I agree, I do not like that cover. (and it's not that I don't like either guy, because I think they are good players and I'm neutral about them.) But it's just not that great looking.

I like the cover. It's just a little underwhelming from what we've been conditioned for.

I wonder why the logo's were removed...Because I know in the gameplay videos there are logos. So it can't be an issue if they have the logos in the game.

That cover is sick to me.

That is one awesome looking cover!

I think the Nike logos were removed because RG3 signed a deal with Adidas. I could be wrong though.
 
# 16 ultralow36 @ 04/16/12 02:06 PM
very nice cover ....cover alone makes me want the game .... (:
 
# 17 StL_RamZ @ 04/16/12 03:34 PM
Nice cover...looks unique...they could've used colors in the background tho it looks bland

He's wearing Adidas gloves and an Adidas arm sleeve.

Also, this cover is definitely one of, if not, the worst.

It a shame two great players and we get that.
 
# 20 TripleCrown9 @ 04/16/12 04:21 PM
Yeah his deal with Adidas made them take the swoosh off. I just saw a draft commercial and his jersey didn't have the swoosh.
