Arian Foster is in the Final Four.

Of course we're talking football. The Texans star running back is still in the running for the “Madden NFL 25” EA Sports cover. Foster beat out wide receivers Danny Amendola and Julio Jones in fan voting in the first two rounds, and then he narrowly beat San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in the third round to reach the quarterfinals. Foster is now the No. 4 seed and is going against No. 3 seed Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in the quarterfinals. The other quarterfinal matchup features Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson. 

The competition is an elimination-style bracket, which this year put 32 NFL legends and 32 current standouts against one another to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the popular video game. The New School champion will face the winner of the Old School bracket, which includes Joe Montana, Barry Sanders, Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders. 

Online voting for the quarterfinal round opened on April 3 and will end on April 10. The winner of the cover will be announced on April 24.

Foster is campaigning for his cover on his Facebook page.
