Barry Sanders, Robert Griffin III on cover of NCAA Football 13
Former Detroit Lions running back and Heisman winner Barry Sanders and 2011 Heisman winner Robert Griffin III will share the cover of NCAA Football 13. Sanders was selected by fans as part of the My Heisman Cover Vote contest by EA Sports.
Like how Detroit Lions' Calvin Johnson is in the Final Four of the Madden 13 cover contest, eight former Heisman winners battled it out in a tournament-style format. Other players in the tournament included Michigan's Desmond Howard, Boston College's Doug Flutie and Ohio State's Eddie George.
Sanders is the second (although former) Detroit athlete to be featured on a cover as of late. Justin Verlander of the Detroit Tigers was the cover boy of MLB 2K12 after his MVP season last year. We'll find out April 18 if Megatron beat Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers to make the championship in the Madden 13 contest. Pavel Datsyuk of the Detroit Red Wings is also in the running to be featured on the NHL 13 cover.
