Tennessee Among States Most Excited for NCAA Football 24 Video Game
Fact Checked by Michael Peters

Even with no games are on the field, the transfer portal, signing periods, schedule announcements, etc., all are the embodiment of college football — the new 24/7, 365-day-a-year sport.

In the Tennessee Hills, fans will have one more item to be on the lookout for this year when "NCAA Football 24" will be released by EA Sports sometime this summer. This year’s edition is special as this will be the first to introduce the names and appearances of college players and will be the first college football game released by EA in 11 years.

Utilizing Google Trends, BetTennessee.com took a slight detour from Tennessee sports betting and analyzed the states searching “NCAA Football 24” over the past 30 days. We finalized the Top 10 states based on the most search volume.

Six of the 10 states listed are from SEC Country including new entrant Oklahoma at 61. The others are Alabama (60), Kentucky (56), Mississippi (44) and Louisiana (39).

Anyone Volunteering for the Game?

It is believed all current Tennessee players will be in the game, so quarterback Joe Milton (2,813 yards passing with 20 TDs), running back Jaylen Wright (1,013 rush yards, 4 TDs) and wide receiver Squirrel White (67 catches, 803 yards, 2 TDs) all will be getting a little piece of the nut when the game launches. Tennessee betting apps list the Volunteers in a tie for 15th place in national championship odds at +4000.

Coach Josh Heupel, who just completed his third season in Knoxville, will certainly be featured in the new video game but what about players over the past 10 years that couldn’t fulfill that extra dream they had of being in a video game. 

With that said, perhaps running back Alvin Kamara (2015-16) or quarterback Joshua Dobbs (2013-16) among other notables will make the lineup. We will all find out this summer.
