EA Sports officially released the cover for College Football 25 on Thursday. The latest installment of their popular video game features Colorado’s Travis Hunter front and center. The Buffaloes two-way star was pictured in the middle alongside Texas quarterback Quinn Ewers (left) and Michigan running back Donovan Edwards (right).

A recipient of the Paul Hornung Award, given to the most versatile player in college football, Hunter was a beast for the Buffaloes last season. At wide receiver, he compiled 57 receptions for 721 yards and five touchdowns. On defense, the shut-down cornerback registered 30 tackles and three interceptions. Perhaps most impressive, Hunter played in over 1,000 snaps from scrimmage despite missing three-plus games due to an injury sustained against Colorado State.

From Nebraska’s Tommie Frazier in 1996 to Michigan’s Denard Robinson in 2013, several notable players have graced the cover of EA Sports’ College Football video game. Last week, the PlayStation store released artwork of the deluxe edition cover of EA Sports College Football ’25 with Hunter, Ewers, and Edwards on the cover. Hunter is the first Colorado Buffaloes player to be pictured on the cover of the popular game.
