EA Sports Throws Memphis Love

We assume you are aware of the return of EA Sports College Football. Right? If not, then we will give you a fast answer of it is returning as ‘College Football 25” and will hit stores on gaming consoles on July 19th. With this, the creators have made their own top rated lists. One of which was the ‘Top Offenses’ in the game. Memphis fans will be pleased as the Tigers rank #19 and are the only ‘G5’ program on the list. 

The list has the Tigers ranked at an ‘85’ ranking which compared to the last game, in 2014, where Memphis was a ‘70’ overall with a ‘72’ for offense is quite the improvement. Based on what we saw last year from one of the most explosive offense in the country we see why the boost.

In 2023, Memphis would finish the season with incredible numbers offensively. Passing would have 3,984 yards with 33 touchdowns, a 66.7% completion rate, and only 10 interceptions. With this, Memphis would run 910 plays with an average of 6.7 yards per play, a 154.8% efficiency rate, and average 495.8 yards per game. Many fans would say these are ‘video game numbers’ and they are. 

With the creators including the Tigers with the top offenses it again solidifies that the continued success of the program is being noticed. In what is a massive season for Memphis we could see many fans cheering in the stands and on the video game for a potent and very explosive offense for their Tigers.
