With the release date of EA Sports' College Football 25 video game inching closer, ESPN broadcaster Chris Fowler posted that he officially completed his announcing parts for the game.

Over the course of two years, Fowler recorded around 115 hours of audio, including about 700 college football stars' names. Unlike the previous edition of the game, which last came out in 2013, this edition will be able to include the players' names because of NIL rules.

Fowler explained just how detailed the analysis for the game will be as he listed numerous scenarios in which him and his broadcasting teammate Kirk Herbstreit recorded content for.

"It is an incredibly detailed process," Fowler said. "I couldn't be more impressed with everyone at EA. Total pros who care so much about the quality and sweat the details."

The game is expected to be released on July 19 after years of anticipation. A cover athlete is supposed to be announced some time in May.
