Kenjon Barner shocked the NFL world in New Orleans before Super Bowl XLVII by teaming up with Florida State quarterback E.J. Manuel and Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson to win the 2013 Madden Bowl. It was the first time a team of pre-NFL Draft rookies won the annual competition. They beat NFL rookies Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green and Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson playing Madden NFL 13.
Barner was able to preview the new EA Sports NCAA Football 14 game at EA Tiburon before the game’s summer release. As one of the top running backs entering the 2013 NFL Draft in New York, Barner is gearing up for his own NFL career. He’s riding a high having won the 2013 Fiesta Bowl on the gridiron before taking the video game championship in NOLA. Barner talks about the new college football game in this exclusive interview.
