While it was a proud moment for Hunter fans, the TCU fans found it very disheartening to see Hunter stealing the spotlight once again the way he did with his catch in the last season. One TCU alum posted a snap on Twitter and wrote, “The first time I see my university in the new game is Chandler’s bum a** giving Travis Hunter the play of his life. Pain.” Meanwhile, a Buffaloes fan humorously pointed out the significance of Hunter’s catch and noted the portrayal of TCU’s misfortune in the game’s promotional material. They tweeted, “It looked to me like TCU is on the website in the ‘Welcome to College Football 25’ photos… getting picked off by Travis Hunter.”

Another Hunter’s faithful humorously envisioned recounting the legendary catch to future generations. They wrote, “Gonna tell my grandkids Travis Hunter caught 4th&31,” encapsulating the enduring impact of Hunter’s remarkable play in Buffalo’s football folklore. Meanwhile, TCU fans expressed disappointment that even after being included in the game, their beloved team did not get much screen time. One of them wrote, “The EA Sports College Football trailer was nice. All it was really missing was TCU.” Meanwhile, another one wrote, “Yeah, I’m a little jealous, not gonna lie.”
Even the TCU fans are disappointed in being outshined by Hunter’s play, but they have to admit that Hunter’s iconic catch was one for the history books and that is exactly why it had to be included in the highly anticipated video game trailer.
