For the past few months EA has held an online election for fans to choose the cover athlete on Facebook. Ingram beat out Washington quarterback Jake Locker, Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley, and Oklahoma running back DeMarco Murray. According to periodic reports during the voting, EA indicated that Ingram was the leader much of the time.
The game will be available on July 12. I’ve been told in past years by employees at GameStop that the game sells in Tuscaloosa as well as any other city in the country and with Ingram on the cover, obtaining a copy here could be pretty difficult.
