Apart from the University of Texas, EA was also capable to receive a “Yes” in the University of Oregon to involve the school’s football system in telling the story of Devin in Longshot.
“We’re excited that we had been in a position to incorporate two fantastic schools just just like the University of Texas and also the University of Oregon,” stated Graddy.
