In the “Old School” vs. “New School” Madden Cover Vote, Hall of Fame running back Barry Sanders has reached the final four, currently head-to-head with Jerry Rice.
After defeating Montana with a 57% majority (546,223 total votes), Sanders (@BarrySanders) tweeted:
“Wow! I didn’t think I would beat Montana on the #Madden25 vote. Thanks to all the fans! I’m coming for you @jerryrice espn.com/maddenvote“
With Sanders so close to the cover title, family, friends and fans are coming out in droves to support the former Lions’ running back.

The vote has brought out Sanders’ competitive (and trash talking?) side.
Sanders tweeted: Thanks to all my friends and fans for the early support. Its Jerry – he’s got enough rings and awards and records. espn.com/maddenvote
Rice is definitely doing his own campaigning, so Lions fans will need to get out and vote. Voting ends April 17!
