The Big Ten has beaten the SEC.

It wasn't a colossal victory, but it was a victory nonetheless when former Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson beat out former Texas A&M wide receiver Ryan Swope on Tuesday to grace the cover of EA Sports' "NCAA Football '14" video game. More than 5 million votes were cast in fan voting that took place on Facebook.

It had to be a tough loss for Swope to swallow. He decided to stay in school for one last year with the Aggies, and all he did was catch 72 passes for 913 yards and a team-high nine touchdowns last fall. He then impressed at last month's NFL combine by posting a blistering 4.34 in the 40-yard dash. Swope has also garnered a little celebrity status by joining the guys at "Dude Perfect" to produce a new trick-shot video.

The EA cover would have been nice, I'm sure, but Swope will probably cheer himself up with some of that cash he'll earn after next month's NFL draft.
