NCAA '12 Has Half a Cover

Not just one, but a pair of athletes will grace the cover of EA's upcoming NCAA '12 college footballer. Baylor allum take note-

None other than Robert Griffin III (or RG3) will be one half of the dynamic duo that will feature on the box front when football fans head out to pick up the game later this Summer.

The pair will be a representative of a current and former great of the NCAA. On the one hand, you've got Griffin- the Baylor QB has a Heisman sitting on his mantle (among other honors) and a catchy nickname.

The first student-athlete from Baylor to win the Heisman Trophy, Robert Griffin III – popularly known as “RG3”— also won the Davey O’Brien Award and was named the Associated Press College Football Player of the Year in 2011.  In 2008, RG3 was named the Big 12 Conference Offensive Freshman of the Year by the league’s coaches, setting the school’s rushing yards record for a freshman and for a quarterback with 843 yards for the season.
So who's the other lucky player? That 'Great' honor is kind of up to you:

Beginning March 12, fans can log on to the EA SPORTS NCAA Football Facebook page to vote for one of eight Heisman Trophy winners to accompany Griffin III on the cover of NCAA Football 13.  The candidates include former University of Southern California running back Marcus Allen, former Boston College quarterback Doug Flutie, former The Ohio State University running back Eddie George, former The University of Michigan wide receiver Desmond Howard, former Oklahoma State University running back Barry Sanders, former University of Georgia running back Herschel Walker, former Florida State University quarterback Charlie Ward and former University of Houston quarterback Andre Ware.
Personally, my vote's for Flutie. I always had a soft spot for that little guy...
