A cryptic Facebook post got our hopes up.

EA Sports revived the official NCAA Football Facebook page this morning after one-and-a-half years of silence, posting a four-second video of a heart monitor and the caption, "Our heart still beats for the big game... #NationalChampionship." Fans wondered if this signaled the return of EA Sports NCAA Football -- the series ended in 2013 following a class-action lawsuit over EA's use of student likenesses in its games.

Despite the surprise Facebook post, the NCAA series is not making a comeback, EA tells Engadget.

"We have no new plans or announcements to make regarding the EA Sports NCAA Football series," a spokesperson says. "Today's National Championship game reminds us more than ever that the hearts in our community still beat for college football."

Sorry, college football fans.

Our heart still beats for the big game... #NationalChampionship
