Tyler Eifert - EA Sports

Notre Dame’s All-Time leader in receptions at tight end, Tyler Eifert, could be on the cover of next year’s EA Sports NCAA Football game with the help of Notre Dame fans!

EA SPORTS has officially announced the eight athletes who will represent their universities in the final rounds of the NCAA Football Cover Vote.  With their schools making it to the semifinal round after ten weeks of voting, the athletes listed below will spend the next few weeks vying for the right to be the cover athlete of the next NCAA Football game.

  • Alabama –  Eddie Lacy
  • Florida State – E.J. Manuel
  • Georgia – Jarvis Jones
  • Michigan – Denard Robinson
  • Notre Dame – Tyler Eifert
  • Ohio State – John Simon
  • Oregon – Kenjon Barner
  • Texas A&M – Ryan Swope

With the addition of players to the Cover Vote, there are now new ways for fans to show their support. For the duration of this round a series of posts showcasing the athletes and their schools will appear on the NCAA Football Facebook page. In order to vote for the player, fans must “like” the image, which in turn registers one vote for the athlete. Fans can also continue to vote for their favorite university through the school polls that are posted on the NCAA Football Facebook page.

Quarterfinal round voting is now open, and will continue through Monday, February 18th when EA SPORTS announces the athletes and schools that have advanced to the semifinal round. The Cover Vote is being conducted exclusively on the NCAA Football Facebook page and fans are encouraged to “like” the page in order to vote for their favorite potential cover athlete.

    Eifert, the 2013 crown jewel of TE’s can definately do it all with speed and efficiency. Not only is Eifert a vastly superior hybrid TE, he may very well be featured in a newly developed “NFL 3 TE SET.” Denver or the Steelers are the obvious suspects. Hmmm….certainly an undeniable nightmare for opposing defenses.

    What about that “John Elway” haircut? OK, Tyler is this a clue? Hahaha!

    Here come our beloved Irish!
