With the release of EA Sports’ NCAA Football 14, gamers have their first opportunity to immerse themselves in the popular card collecting Ultimate Team mode with some of college football’s all-time greats. The inclusion of Ultimate Team mode in NCAA Football 14 allows college football fans to assemble a roster from over 1400 of the game’s greatest players.
Gamers can play against the CPU in solo challenges, or go head-to-head online in Seasons Mode. By collecting “coins”, players can help build their own powerhouse lineups, comprised of greats like Desmond Howard, Doug Flutie, and Eddie George.
ESPN and EA Sports asked fans to vote on the #UltimateTeam of the last 25 years, and the Nebraska Cornhuskers emerged victorious on the strength of their back-to-back National Championships of the 1990s. As a part of the celebration of the great Cornhuskers teams, Tommie Frazier has been included as a playable character in NCAA Football 14‘s Ultimate Team Mode. Frazier is best remembered for leading the 1994 and 1995 Cornhuskers teams to back-to-back National Championships. Frazier’s 75-yard run versus the Florida Gators in the 1996 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl is still considered one of the greatest plays in college football history.
EA Sports is giving away a Tommie Frazier card to anyone who logs into NCAA Football 14’s Ultimate Team mode from Friday, August 16 to Thursday, August 22. Frazier lent Franchise Mode a few minutes of his time to discuss all things NCAA Football 14.
Franchise Mode: How much of a role did you play in bringing Nebraska fans out to vote on EA Sports’ #UltimateTeam?
Tommie Frazier: I didn’t really have to play an active role in that because the fans of Nebraska are going to do what’s right. They were always going to go out and support their program and the University of Nebraska. I don’t think any former players had to do much lobbying. If you know the true passion of fans of the Nebraska football program, then you know that anytime they have a chance to go out and support the football program, then they’re going to do it.
