MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Who says you need to play the game? Earlier this week EA Sports week released a simulation of the 2010 Backyard Brawl being played this Friday afternoon at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. And this year’s winner? West Virginia.

Trailing 7-6 after the first quarter, the Mountaineers erupted for 10 points in the third quarter and then added 10 more in the fourth to pull away with a 26-14 victory. Pitt tallied touchdowns in the first and fourth quarters.

NCAA Football 11 is one of the most popular games on the market, delivering unique game play and traditions for each of the 120 schools through the TruSchool system, which blends offensive styles, coaching tendencies, areas of talent, stadiums and traditions to bring the pageantry and rivalry of college football to life like never before.

The real game kicks off at noon on Friday and will be televised nationally by ABC.
