Within the next few months, we're expecting to see Texas football return to the video game platform with the extremely highly anticipated release of EA Sports College Football 25. The new college football video game is expected to have a full reveal at some point this month.

Which Texas football players have starred on the cover of an NCAA Football video game?

The anticipated release date for EA Sports College Football 25 is sometime during the summer. In the past when EA Sports was still releasing their college football video game annually, the drop would usually be some point before school starts during the summer.

What makes this the most highly anticipated college football video game potentially in the sport's history is the fact that its release has remained dormant for over a decade. The last time an NCAA Football video game was released by EA was for the 2013 season, titled "NCAA Football 14".

There is an expectation that the Longhorns can get their third player on the cover of an EA Sports college football video game when it is fully revealed at some point in the coming days/weeks in May.

Here are three Longhorns players that either could be on the cover this year or have been on an EA Sports college football video game cover in the past.

Ricky Williams (NCAA Football 2000)

The first-ever college football video game graced by a Texas player as the cover athlete was running back Ricky Williams for NCAA Football 2000. This game was only made for the PlayStation console, and it featured Williams running over a Texas A&M Aggies player.

This NCAA Football game was made for the 1999 college football season, one year after Williams' last campaign on the Forty Acres. Williams was a no-brainer for the cover of this video game since he won the Heisman Trophy the previous season (in 1998). He rushed for over 2,000 yards and 27 touchdowns in one of the most dominant seasons we've seen from a college football running back in the last few decades.

NCAA Football 2000 was one of the boundary-pushing games in the EA Sports franchise. It added more teams and bowl games that were able to be played.
