In all likelihood, this will be the final NCAA Football simulation ever created.
Typing such things creates a sinking feeling, and the void is taking shape before it actually exists. I’ve grown to love this nerdy football ritual over the past few years, and I hope you have as well. With EA Sports putting the kibosh on the series, however, NCAA Football 14 will likely be the last installment we have to work with for a while.
There will be roster updates and attempts to keep things alive and well, of course, but it won’t be the same. This is likely the end.
Instead of diving deep into the sorrows of the lost series, however, we’re celebrating the end of an era the only way we know how: by simulating the entire bowl season and getting our nerd on once more.
For those of you tuning in to the end of this ritual, here’s the rundown: Using the video game NCAA Football 14, all games from the bowl season have been simulated. Because these bowl games weren’t predetermined, all 35 games were set up independently.
How long did this all take to do, you ask? More time than one should spend on a video game simulation, but it was all worth it.
All BCS games have been showcased, and results for all other bowl games are included as well.
It’s been a pleasure, folks.
