Don’t look now, but college eSports programs battling it out for national championships on ESPN looks to be a distinct possibility in the near future as yet another Division I university has created an eSports varsity team.
The University of Akron has created an eSports program with the possibility of students earning scholarships to be a part of the team. Cleveland.com has the scoop:

It won’t be long before gamers begin getting recruited to play games at their Universities and we’re all debating which four teams belong in the eSports playoff at this rate.

We can dream can’t we?
