    Top 10 Teams To Rebuild in EA Sports College Football 25

    Rebuilds are the rage right now on YouTube because they give a struggling fanbase hope that a video game can become a future reality. There are two categories for rebuilds, and it depends on how drastic you want it to be.

    Teams like the Kent State Golden Flashes and New Mexico Lobos will take more time from a talent perspective, but true players know those are the programs you start a dynasty with in the game. Anyone can win a National Championship with the blue bloods, but can you recruit well enough to bring a bottom-feeder to the top of college football?

    Some fanbases are waiting for their teams to return to the “good ole days” where they dominated the sport. That can vary in terms of how long it’s been, but EA Sports College Football 25 allows those fans to recreate the glory days.

    Some smaller school teams also fit this category. SMU was a team that was flying high before they received the death penalty, and a team like Boise State used to be a potential top-five team every year. Minnesota hasn’t won a title since the 1960s, but it used to run the sport.

    Most people, however, look at the big names to return to glory.

    Teams in long title droughts fit this category the most. Miami and Notre Dame are two teams that once reigned over college football but have failed to return there, so fans of those teams can achieve that goal through the video game. Other teams like Tennessee and Penn State also fit here and have the necessary resources to return to glory in the game — and real life.

    • Clemson Tigers
