Garrett Greene is in THE game. WVU’s star quarterback will officially be in the EA Sports College Football 2025 video game. Greene revealed his decision to opt into appearing in the game on Friday night via a post on Instagram.

West Virginia Included in College Football 2025 Video Game

EA Sports has teased the return of the beloved video game for the last few years. EA hasn’t released a college football video since since NCAA Football 14, which was released in July 2013. Things will get interesting to see how EA presents the game. A lot has changed in the college athletics landscape since 2013, like the transfer portal, conference realignment and NIL.

Name, Image and Likeness will be a factor in the game as student-athletes have the opportunity to market themselves in the game. NIL has also been a hurdle for EA as the players have went back-and-forth on what they want for being in the game. Pete Nakos reported on Thursday that players can now opt-in to appear in the game. Student-athletes that opt-in are expected to receive $600 and a cope of the video game.

West Virginia kicker Michael Hayes was one of the first players to announce that he will opt-in and be included in the game.

But now WVU fans know they will be able to play as Greene in the video game. Greene’s emergence is part of what provides hope to West Virginia fans about the 2024 season, both in the video game world and in reality.
