EA may have benched its college basketball sim for the 2010-2011 season, but the publisher's NCAA Football franchise won't be slowing its annual rush. Today, EA Sports announced that NCAA Football 11 will kick off on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 2 on July 13.
University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow will lead this year's charge as NCAA Football 11's cover athlete. Tebow earned the coveted Heisman Trophy in 2007, the same year the Gators picked up their first of two BCS Championships with the dynamic passer and rusher at the helm. Tebow also gained a measure of notoriety after appearing in a pro-life commercial during Super Bowl XLIV.
EA Tiburon returns as the developer for this year's college gridiron installment. The Orlando, Florida-based studio has been mostly tight-lipped on the major changes it has made to this year's outing. However, an assortment of tweaks that EA has announced include on-field refs, gang tackles, and formation subs. The publisher also notes that Tiburon has crafted offenses for each of the 120 teams that mirror their real-world counterparts.
