    As part of tonight's Madden NFL 20 cover athlete reveal, EA SPORTS also announced the new mode 'Face of the Franchise: QB1' and the inclusion of the College Football Playoff and ten college football programs.

    This new mode is being labeled as a career campaign centered around the user. Players will create a quarterback that they can then compete in the College Football Playoff en route to being drafted and entering the NFL.

    The ten programs that users can select to place their created quarterback are Clemson, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Miami, Oklahoma, Oregon, Southern Cal, Texas, and Texas Tech.

    Following the cancellation of the NCAA Football franchise in 2013, Madden NFL 18's Longshot mode was the first to include any form of college football with users playing as Texas versus Oregon in Darrell K. Royal Stadium. With M20 adding the College Football Playoff and ten total programs, could EA SPORTS be planning an eventual return to college football gaming? At the very least, it would seem that the company has realized including college football in Madden - and making it one of their first major marketing announcements - is a selling point for the product. ...
