First look at Arch Manning in EA Sports College Football 25

In a July 9 post on X, Arch Manning was featured alongside his uncle, former NFL QB Eli Manning, in a video where he announced that he will have his likeness featured in the upcoming College Football 25 video game. This comes after months of speculation about Manning's involvement with the game, as rumors swirled about the young player not accepting EA's offer to include him in the game.

Towards the end of the clip, you can see Arch Manning, presumably, in the game for the first time competing at a University of Texas practice. This is a sensible setting, as Manning is still slated to be second on the Longhorns depth chart behind cover athlete Quinn Ewers, who will look to lead Texas to a National Championship in the 2024-2025 season.

We aren't sure about Manning, but for most players, having their likeness in College Football 25 awarded them a free copy of the game and $600, according to ESPN. This involved over 10,000 players or around 87% of total college football players. This means that EA Sports has given over six million dollars in payouts, not including the large figures awarded to universities for their likeness.

With the release of EA Sports College Football 25 just over one week away, hype is as big as ever. To tide yourself over until then, make sure to check out all of our other CFB25 content, including team rankings and guides to everything you can expect from Dynasty mode!
