Former Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson will grace the cover of college football simulation NCAA Football 14 when it launches this summer.
The Big Ten star beat out Texas A&M wide receiver Ryan Swope in a fan vote on the game’s Facebook page. Close to 6 million people voted, says publisher Electronic Arts.
Robinson is the third Michigan player to appear on the cover of NCAA Football. In 1998, cornerback and Heisman Trophy winner Charles Woodson appeared on the cover of NCAA Football 99, while college superstar Desmond Howard appeared on NCAA Football 06. Although Howard’s last year at Michigan was in 1991, he graced the cover to help promote the franchise’s Race to the Heisman mode, which debuted in the 2005 game.
EA says they will reveal new information about NCAA Football 14 in the coming weeks. The series follows up a rough season last year with NCAA Football 13, which featured few adjustments and overlooked technical bugs that plagued the franchise in previous years.
