NCAA Football 14 comes out a week from Tuesday and it appears that Bo Jackson will be making an appearance in the game. I’m guessing he will appear in their new game NCAA Ultimate Team Mode, where you can collect cards and create a team of former NCAA players. This is likely more damning evidence for EA Sports and the NCAA in the Ed O’Bannon lawsuit, but this is pretty sweet.
His player will be all but unstoppable, which will be pretty much exactly what it was like in real life and he will be known as “Epic Bo.” There will be a free, less awesome version of Bo Jackson given out to people who play the game online the first week it is released, but the “Epic Bo” which is a nod to “Techmo Bo” will be tougher to obtain.
EA Sports NCAA Football 14 will have "Epic Bo" version of Bo Jackson with 99 overall rating, 99 speed, 99 trucking and 98 acceleration.

The occurrence of a promising career being lost to an injury is far too frequent in the NFL. It is nearly unfathomable to imagine what players like Bo Jackson or Terrell Davis would have accomplished had they not been forced into early retirement by a crushing injury—Jackson was an athlete unlike anyone prior. And Davis, who was still in his 20’s upon the tearing of his anterior...
