Madden 21 sees the return of Face of the Franchise with Rise to Fame and once again, college teams are on the menu. At least for a little while. Here’s what you need to know about how to play as college teams in Madden 21 and which teams made it into the game this year.
How To Play as College Teams in Madden 21
Just so we’re clear up front. Madden 21 is still very much a game about NFL pro teams. There isn’t any kind of college team game mode or anything like that. It’s likely just still too risky in EA’s mind to take college football too seriously in an online game. Read this feature from former Twinfinite contributor Zach Stevens if you’re curious why that is.
That said, EA does give college football fans a little something at least in Rise to Fame, Face of the Franchise. In this game mode you will play out the entire career of a created character starting from high school going all the way, hopefully, to the Hall of Fame.
And yes, along the way, you can play for a college team and experience that briefly before moving onto the combine, the draft and eventually the pros.
You’re able to select from the following teams when you start the game mode and you’ll play a some games with the team that you pick:
- Clemson Tigers
- Florida Gators
- LSU Tigers
- Miami Hurricanes
- Michigan State Spartans
- Nebraska Cornhuskers
- Oklahoma Sooners
- Oregon Ducks
- Texas Longhorns
- USC Trojans
Of course, you won’t be able to play as any real-life college players as that’s still a big no-no until players can be allowed to be properly compensated for their likeness.
That’s just about everything you need to know about how to play as college teams in Madden 21 and which ones are in the game.
