When EA Sports released its latest sneak preview of features included in the College Football 25 video game, fans and gamers learned that they will have access to current and former players from their team.

Over the past century of Texas Longhorns football, some of the greatest college football players of all time have passed through Darrell K Royal Memorial Stadium.

From Earl Campbell to Colt McCoy, Longhorn legends have shined brightly for Texas.

So, which Texas Exes will be the most utilized former players as fans dive deep into College Football 25?

Of course the beloved quarterback would be first up on this list.

Texas fans will use and abuse Young as their Ultimate Team quarterback.

A good throwback quarterback option is Bobby Layne who played for the Horns eight decades ago.

While Colt McCoy was devastatingly never able to lead the Longhorns to a national title, he was an elite quarterback while he was at Texas.

Throughout his collegiate career, McCoy had 122 total touchdowns and more than 13,253 passing yards. McCoy is undeniably a Longhorn legend.
