EA Will Feature NFL Stars in College Football 25 Ultimate Team

NFL: AFC Championship-Cincinnati Bengals at Kansas City Chiefs

Over the last decade, fans have watched some legitimate superstars roll through college football without even having a chance to see them in a video game.

Sure, Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson are fun to play as in Madden — but can you imagine them at Texas Tech or Louisville?

We’ve seen players like Bryce Young, DeVonta Smith, Joe Burrow, Kyler Murray, and Baker Mayfield go through their college careers without ever gracing the cover, let alone a college football game at all.


Well, that’s all set to change now, as EA Sports College Football 25 is set to release next week.

According to Tuesday’s release from EA Sports, some of the greatest NFL stars in the game will be back in their college days for this new game.

“First, we are incredibly proud to announce that in addition to players of today and retired legends of the past, College Football Ultimate Team will feature active NFL players,” the release reads. “Thanks to our partnership with the NFLPA, the mode will include active players like Patrick Mahomes, Davante Adams, Christian McCaffrey, Josh Allen, Ceedee Lamb, Stefon Diggs, Joe Burrow, and many more who can join your squad!”

So, for all of those fans out there that had to go through the last several years wondering what it would’ve been like to see Derrick Henry in an Alabama jersey or Christian McCaffrey as a Stanford Cardinal — it’s time.


One Team Partners (the same licensing group that secured the NIL deals for college players) was involved in the process of securing the NFL players that are included in the game.

Like we’ve seen in Madden, the “Ultimate Team” mode allows players to build their own star-studded squads of players from all different seasons and generations. It’s one of the most popular game modes in the EA’s Madden franchise, but has been heavily criticized fo its prioritization of in-game purchases.
