After a decade-long hiatus, EA Sports’ “College Football” series is gearing up for its much-anticipated return with “College Football 25”. The scheduled summer release will end the long wait from the last release of NCAA Football 14 in 2013. That game featured then-Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson on its cover.

Fans have something extra to cheer about: the inclusion of the Fighting Irish. Notre Dame’s appearance in the EA Sports video game was initially uncertain due to concerns surrounding Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) compensation for its players. However, after two years of negotiations, Athletic Director Jack Swarbrick has confirmed that the Irish will indeed be playable.
