The nation’s most popular and successful college football video game franchise, EA Sports’NCAA Football 14 will feature, for the first time in its history, the Broyles Award.
The Broyles Award honors college football’s top assistant coach. The game, which was released today, was launched for the first time in 1993, has sold to date more than 23 million units and has generated more than 900 million dollars in net revenue.
“We are very excited to include the Broyles Award in NCAA Football 14. With the ability to play as either an offensive or defensive coordinator in the game, it’s great to be able to pay off that experience with the ability to win the Broyles Award” said Ben Haumiller, EA Sports Producer for NCAA Football 14.
“It is always a great source of pride for me to have my name associated with an award which recognizes the tireless efforts of college football’s assistant coaches, who are basically the unsung heroes of any successful football program. And now with its addition to EA Sports’NCAA Football 14, the Broyles Award will stand alongside other great college football traditions being passed on to future generations” said Former Arkansas Razorback Head Coach and Athletic Director Frank Broyles.
This marks the second trophy included in the EA Sports NCAA Football franchise that was created by former Razorback linebacker David Bazzel.
“I’m extremely proud that Arkansas has ties to two awards in a game as popular as NCAA Football 14. Fans can play to win the Golden Boot, a trophy associated with the Arkansas and LSU matchup, and now have a chance to also win the Broyles Award. I’m especially excited to see that the legacy and name of Frank Broyles will be perpetuated by this game for millions of current and future college football fans” said David Bazzel.
Here’s something else fun about the new game: Alex Collins, a freshman running back for the Arkansas Razorbacks, found himself on it today, too.
