Introducing the Finalists!
Denard Robinson, QB/ATH, Michigan: Denard Robinson is looking to become the third different Michigan Wolverine to grace the cover of an NCAA Football title. Charles Woodson appeared on the cover of NCAA Football 99, while Desmond Howard was chosen for NCAA Football 2006 in correspondence with the launch of the Race for the Heisman mode.
Few players in NCAA history have possessed the game-breaking ability of Denard Robinson, better known to some as “Shoelace.” He's one of just two quarterbacks in the history of college football to pass for 2,500 yards and rush for 1,500 yards in the same season, and also holds the NCAA record for most career rushing yards by a QB (4,495).
Ryan Swope, WR, Texas A&M: After an emphatic win in the Cotton Bowl to cap their first year in the SEC, Texas A&M jumped to an early lead in the NCAA Football Cover Vote and have not looked back. It’s been quite a year in Aggieland, and it may continue with the cover of NCAA Football 14.
Swope is the most decorated wide receiver in the storied history of Aggie football after leaving College Station as the school's all-time leader in both receptions (252) and receiving yards (3,117). Swope was pivotal in Texas A&M's November upset of then-No.1 Alabama, hauling in 11 catches for 111 yards and a score.
Vote totals have been reset, and fans are encouraged to vote on the NCAA Football Facebook page. Voting is now live, and will continue through Friday, March 8.
