Did you know that when Denard Robinson’s image hits the cover of NCAA Football 14 that he’ll become the 25th star to grace the cover of EA's collegiate video game?
What is now NCAA Football was initially launched under the title Bill Walsh College Football back in 1992, was rebranded College Football USA in 1996 and finally picked up its current title in 1998.
Of the 25 personalities that have been featured on the cover of the gaming franchise, 10 are Heisman Trophy winners, 14 are standout players from the year before the game’s release and one is a well-known mascot.
The following slideshow looks back at the 25 NCAA Football video game covers presented by EA and power ranks, for your pleasure, the 10 best of the best.
It’s important to note that EA didn’t feature an athlete on the cover of its college football game until the 1997 version and that in both 2009 and 2010 it selected a separate athlete for each different gaming console it supported (i.e. PS2, PS3e, PSP, Wii, Xbox360).
