NCAA Football 13′ features Big 12 Athletes

What a year to be a former Heisman winner. EA Sport’s NCAA Football’s upcoming installment will feature Robert Griffin III with Barry Sanders.

The new game features updated graphics and presentation values with a new quarterback-receiver response system and Heisman Challenge game mode so that you may win college football’s highest honor.

Fans voted former Oklahoma State RB Barry Sanders onto the cover over University of Georgia RB Herschel Walker in the final hour of voting.

The upcoming football season is highly anticipated and I suspect it will not disappoint. The hype over these developments will undoubtedly fuel the Big 12’s already heated rivalries and with new additions WVU and TCU to the roster, the 2012-13 season is sure to be interesting.

WVU is Chris Huston’s Favorite for Heisman Contenders

Chris Huston of the Heisman Pundit recently released his Big 12 Heisman picks with West Virginia University appearing the sure winner.

Huston’s number one Heisman candidate was none other than WVU Quarterback, Geno Smith. Throwing for almost 4,400 yards this year, Smith lead the Mountaineers to a 70-33 win over the Clemson Tigers in the 2012 Orange bowl.

Another Mountaineer, Tavon Austin, made Huston’s list under the “Dark Horse” category. Austin is widely regarded as one of college football’s most versatile skill players hailing from Dunbar High School in Baltimore, Maryland.

Head coach Dana Holgorsen’s high-speed spread offense is sure to shake up the Big 12 this fall.
