Holiday Bowl: EA Sports NCAA Football 13 Simulates Baylor Bears vs. UCLA Bruins

Use your ← → (arrow) keys to browse more stories

UCLA Bruins fans have to be hoping that Brett Hundley has this kind of game in the real Holiday Bowl. He got banged up early in this NCAA Football 13 simulation, but he came back to torch the Baylor Bears.

Truth be told, if you watched the video, you saw that injuries and turnovers are what truly cost the Bears in this virtual matchup.

I'm sure the Bruins will be happy with a real life win, however it comes.

Fans may feel a little shortchanged if they don't get an opportunity to watch Nick Florence or Lache Seastrunk for the entire four quarters, though.

This is the second bowl simulation I've conducted on my YouTube channel, Franchiseplay Sports. The first was an exciting simulation of the Maaco Las Vegas Bowl matchup, Washington Huskies vs. Boise State Broncos.

If you missed that one, click here to see it.

For each matchup, I use the rosters downloaded from the roster-share option on the game. EA Sports is prohibited from using the real names of players because they are amateur athletes. A few hard-working souls team up to create these awesome rosters for the community.

An Xbox 360 gamer with the gamertag BamaBound2010 provided the rosters I used in these simulations. I still had to perform a few adjustments to make the depth charts accurate for the upcoming games.

The difficulty is set to Heisman to ensure the best and most realistic outcomes. The game provides the authentic sites and stadiums for each bowl simulated. I even used the built-in Weather Channel forecast option to create realistic temperatures for the games.

Every BCS bowl game will be covered, but here is a list of the other bowl games that will also be simulated. If the simulation has already been done, the link is provided below.
