On Thursday, EA Sports dropped its top offensive and defensive teams in College Football 25, and while they might’ve gotten some of them seriously wrong, it’s yet another sign that the game is almost here.

College Football 25 might be the most-anticipated sports video game that we’ve ever seen, as it’s the first licensed college football video game to be released since NCAA 14 was released 11 years ago.

Fans of college football and video games alike are counting the seconds until the game releases on July 19, just over three weeks from today.

However, while we wait for the game to hit the shelves (or… consoles?), it’s time to argue amongst ourselves why EA got their team ratings right or wrong.

 

TOP OFFENSES IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL 25

EA released its Top 25 offenses at around 10:20 a.m. on Thursday morning, with Georgia and Oregon leading the way with 94 OVR ratings.

Alabama, listed as a 91 OVR, was the only other offense in the game that topped a 90 rating, while Ohio State, LSU, Miami, Colorado, and Missouri all checked in at 89 overall and ranked fourth through ninth on the list.
