Arch Manning is in the game.

The Texas quarterback and former Newman standout said in a video posted to X that his likeness will be included in the EA Sports College Football 25 video game that will be released July 19.

Manning did not previously say if he would be included in the game that required permission from individuals for the use of their likenesses.

The video began with his uncle Eli Manning making a play call into a headset. Arch, also wearing a headset as he held a video game controller, followed with a cadence that included “Green 18” in possible reference to the Manning Newman jersey number retired by the school. He also said “Omaha” in reference to his uncle Peyton’s call at the line.

The play resulted in a touchdown, and the video ended with Arch saying, “EA Sports, I’m in the game.”
