Top 10 Games We Can’t Wait To Play in EA Sports College Football 25

    With under a month until EA Sports College Football 25's highly anticipated release, which games on the 2024 schedule are we most excited to play?

    Anticipation for EA Sports College Football 25 has reached peak levels. With most fans gearing up for Dynasty and Road to Glory, which games should players circle on the 2024 schedule?

    Top Games on the 2024 Schedule To Play in EA Sports College Football 25

    Navy at Army, Week 16

    If the triple-option offense lives up to EA’s promised overhaul, the Army-Navy game will be one of the best experiences players can have. Both squads have offensive lines and backfield playmakers (Bryson Daily and Kanye Udoh, Army; Alex Tezca and Blake Horvath, Navy) to put up points, especially in the hands of capable users.

    Michigan at Ohio State, Week 14

    Michigan has won “The Game” in each of the last three seasons, and with Jim Harbaugh off to the NFL, all the pressure is on Ryan Day and Co. to defend their home turf against their bitter rival.

    If you play as the Wolverines, expect significant screen shaking and squiggly play art due to The Shoe’s capacity of 102,780, the third largest in the country.

    Florida State at Miami (FL), Week 9

    While FSU has taken home three straight victories in this matchup, Miami still holds the all-time lead at 35-33. Both teams snatched QBs from what’s left of the Pac-12 in Washington State’s Cameron Ward (Miami) and Oregon State’s DJ Uiagalelei (Florida State).

    The Sunshine State skirmish will have conference title implications and could factor into the College Football Playoff bracket. Which squad will you play as?

    Texas vs. Oklahoma, Week 7 (in Dallas)

    The Red River Rivalry will mean more from now on, with both Texas and Oklahoma joining the SEC in 2024. The former Big 12 powerhouses will face off at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, and the Sooners hope to knock off a CFP favorite.

    The Longhorns still earned a postseason spot after falling to their rival last season, but now in the strongest conference in the nation, they might not remain in the dance after such a loss.

    Ohio State at Penn State, Week 10

    The Nittany Lions are 6-1 in their last seven “White Out” games, and their contest with Ohio State will likely be that matchup in 2024.

    The Buckeyes have won seven straight against the Nittany Lions, but anything can happen at State College. While both sides have elite talent that players will generate points with, Penn State’s Stadium Pulse Meter will be off the charts.

    Texas at Texas A&M, Week 14

    Texas A&M has gone 57-21 at home since moving to the SEC in 2012, playing up to visiting competition in front of their fans. With Kyle Field owning the highest capacity in the conference (102,733) and the fourth highest in the nation, there’s certainly a lot of them.

    The developers tabbed Kyle Field as the toughest stadium to play in for their game, so expect the 12th man to give their squad a massive virtual advantage in the first Lone Star Showdown in 13 years.

    Auburn at Alabama, Week 14

    The Iron Bowl is appointment viewing every year.

    • 2023: Milroe Miracle. Down 24-20, QB Jalen Milroe found WR Isaiah Bond in the end zone on 4th and 31 with 32 seconds remaining.
    • 2021: Alabama won 24-22 in a four-overtime contest.
    • 2019: No. 15 Auburn beat No. 5 Alabama in a 48-45 back-and-forth duel.
    • 2014: No. 1 Alabama defeated No. 15 Auburn in the highest-scoring Iron Bowl of all time, 55-44.
    • 2013: Kick Six. No. 4 Auburn shocked No. 1 Alabama, 34-28. With one second remaining and the game tied 28-28, Alabama’s 57-yard potential game-winning field goal fell short, allowing  Auburn CB Chris Davis to return it 109 yards for the game-winning TD as time expired.
    • 2010: The Camback. No. 2 Auburn held off No. 11 Alabama 28-27 in Tuscaloosa. QB Cam Newton rallied the Tigers after being doesn’t 24-0, preserving their undefeated season, which culminated in the program’s second national championship.

    Need I say more?

    Boise State at Oregon, Week 2

    Boise State has quietly defeated Oregon in all three of their all-time matchups. And with QB Malachi Nelson, RB Ashton Jeanty, DT Braxton Fely, EDGE Ahmad Hassanein, LB Andrew Simpson, CB A’Marion McCoy, and a trio of solid safeties back in 2024, they’ll do their best to upset the Ducks once again.

    The game being in Autzen Stadium is another factor in its placement on this list. It’s easy to forget it has a max capacity of 54,000 due to its design, carrying the crowd’s volume from the seats to the field and keeping it there. The Ducks have suffered just one home loss in over the last five years — will you help the Broncos bring the total to two?

    Georgia at Clemson, Week 1 (in Atlanta)

    Dabo Swinney and the Tigers are aiming to re-establish themselves as a national power after going 9-4 last season. Upsetting Georgia in their home state to kick off the season would do just that. Although Clemson is the “home” team, the contest will be played in Mercedes-Benz Stadium, home of the Atlanta Falcons.

    Any LSU Night Game

    On gamedays, Tiger Stadium becomes the fifth-largest city in the state of Louisiana, with over 102,000 fans packing the stands. And over the past 24 seasons, those fans have watched their team leave their home field with 141 wins in 165 games.

    The atmosphere reaches all-new heights under the lights, and there are three potential night games we’re looking forward to: Ole Miss (Week 7), Alabama (Week 11), and Oklahoma (Week 14). We know the Bama game will be must-watch TV, and the Week 14 matchup with Oklahoma could have CFP implications.

    Nevertheless, the battle with Ole Miss is the most exciting of the trio. Last year’s battle included 14 TDs and 1,300 yards of offense between the two, and this year’s squads are primed for SEC title pushes.
