Sooner could be 'NCAA Football' cover boy

3/3/2011

Any fans want former Oklahoma running back DeMarco Murray on the cover of "NCAA Football 12"?

EA Sports announced four possible cover athletes this week, and Murray is one of them.

He'll have to beat out Alabama running back Mark Ingram, Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley and Washington quarterback Jake Locker to earn a spot on the game.

Voters will have to do so on Facebook.

Voting runs through April 4, and the winner will be announced on April 19. The game is traditionally released in mid-July.

Texas' Brian Orakpo was on the cover of the PlayStation 2 version of the 2010 game, and Texas Tech receiver Michael Crabtree was on the XBox 360 version of the same game.

Before that, the only other Big 12 players to land on the cover were Texas running back Ricky Williams in 2000 and Nebraska quarterback Tommie Frazier in 1997, back in the days of Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis.
