Home Field Advantage Makes its Next Gen Debut! – Composure is the key when in a hostile environment.

If your pass is picked off, the “Quarterback Quiz” mini-game will appear and you will be asked to identify which defense you just faced. Choose correctly and regain some of your composure. Call a timeout as you “Ice the Kicker” before your opponent goes for a game winning field goal as an all-new lower camera angle with audible heartbeat and controller rumble will make it difficult for your opponent to complete the field goal. Interactive timeouts allow you to choose up to 6 offensive or 6 defensive strategies for the drive, which will uniquely affect your gameplay.
What is College Atmosphere? – Revel in the spirit of game day with crowds decorated in school colors and sidelines packed with energetic mascots and cheerleaders as team specific sounds like cannon blasts and chants keeps the energy high after every score.
