Maybe "winners" is too strong a word because right now all they've "won" is the right to represent their school on the cover should their school win the NCAA Football 14
The eight athletes and their respective schools are: Eddie Lacy (Alabama), E.J. Manuel (Florida State), Jarvis Jones (Georgia), Denard Robinson (Michigan), Tyler Eifert (Notre Dame), John Simon (Ohio State), Kenjon Barner (Oregon), Ryan Swope (Texas A&M).
There are now two ways to vote. You can either "like" the image of the player or vote for your favorite school just like before. You can do both of those as the NCAA Football Facebook page
. This round of voting will continue until February 18th.
