The Beehive State will have three schools featured in the video game later this year, BYU, Utah, and Utah State.

All three programs shared their excitement for the game after EA Sports’ announcement.

“It’s in the game … and so are we!!” BYU football posted on X.

“We’re in the game,” Utah football shared.

“Aggie Nation, we’re in the game!” USU football shared on social media.

College Football 25 and NIL

On February 22, players became eligible to opt into College Football 25, according to ESPN. Players who opt-in will reportedly receive $600 and a copy of the game via EA Sports’ NIL process.

“We feel very proud that we’ll be the largest program, likely the highest-spending program,” EA Sports vice president of business development Sean O’Brien told ESPN. “And really an inclusive opportunity with an equitable distribution of funds across the board.”

EA Sports plans to share a full reveal of College Football 25 in May.

About College Football video game series

The College Football game series began in 1993.

In 1997, it took on the “NCAA Football” name after a licensing agreement with the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). NCAA Football’s last version was released in 2013 as “NCAA Football 14.”

In July 2013, the NCAA and Electronic Arts were unable to continue their agreement due to legal battles regarding the name, image, and likeness of players.

With the current landscape in college athletics and NIL opportunities for players, the game is primed for its impending revival.
