As fans anxiously await the return of the EA Sports College Football franchise this summer, more details continue to be revealed for the first new game in over a decade.

ESPN’s No. 1 college football broadcast team of Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit will be the featured play-by-play announcers in the video game.

“I’m in the Game!” Fowler posted to social media on Thursday. “I can finally make it official. I am honored to be one of the voices in #CFB25 ! Wait until you see this game! #EAPartner”

It will be Fowler’s first appearance in the video game as the play-by-play announcer, as previous versions of the franchise featured CBS college football announcer Brad Nessler as the game’s play-by-play voice.

Herbstreit, who was a mainstay in earlier versions of the video game, also confirmed that he will be back.

“I’m so excited to FINALLY announce that I’m part of @EASPORTSCollege. I’m proud to be a partner and one of the voices of the game once again - my 14th year in that role. #CFB25 #EAPartner,” Herbstreit posted.

Thursday was a significant day of announcements for the impending video game, as EA Sports revealed that all 134 FBS schools would be featured. In addition, Thursday was the first day that student-athletes across the FBS could formally register to be included in the video game, which will net athletes $600 and a free copy of the video game for their name, image and likeness to be used by EA Sports.
