Building on their experience with Bill Walsh College Football, EA Sports is setting up to bring you College Football USA '97 for the Sega Genesis.

A realistic play engine and a good artificial intelligence, combined with a host of options and in-depth statistics, should produce a real impact on the world of video football.
College Football offers tons of features on both offense and defense. Want to fake out your opponent? Try a fake snap and see if you can draw him offside. Want to crush the offense into the ground?
