Avid video gamers couldn't pass up a play or two on a new video game that hit the shelves Tuesday—EA Sports' NCAA Football 13.

This year, the game has a special tie to Baylor University. The cover of the game features former Baylor Bear and Heisman Trophy Winner Robert Griffin, III.

"This is something that the school has never seen before. So for us to have this opportunity, we couldn't have asked for anything more," Matt Ricks with the Baylor Bookstore said.

The game is just another reason to celebrate a big win for the community through a special party. "I'm ecstatic right now. I love RG3, and I'm glad for the publicity pouring in from the nation," Baylor student Jonathan Whatley said. “This is a great university and they really deserve it."

The game brings memories of a winning season and player they're in no rush to forget.

"Robert Griffin, in Baylor's eyes and especially here in the Waco community, will always be a Baylor Bear,” Ricks said. “Even though he's wearing maroon, he's always going to be green and gold to us."

Griffin shares the cover with past Heisman Trophy winner and former Oklahoma State running back Barry Sanders. Sanders was chosen by fan vote, beating out six others.
