On a spooky night, citizens of college football town Fansville gather at the graveyard-like "transfer portal" to convince a player not to take the leap. Distraught over his most recent depth chart stats, Rico ignores reassurances from the town sheriff and trudges slowly towards the portal in his State uniform. The townsfolk attempt their final pleas --"You don't have to transfer!" "You're only a sophomore! There's still time!" -- but he jumps through the portal with a last battle cry: "Rico's time is nowww!" Fansville's disappointment is palpable when a much smaller player arrives for the trade, but all is forgiven when the newbie mentions the Dr Pepper he brought to share with the town. "Welcome to State!"
