Gameplay is similar to NCAA Football 2003, but with updated player stats and rosters. Players have their jersey number and position as their names in the game, however the user can name the players their real-life names or other names if they so choose. The player can also create their own college for gameplay in the game or Dynasty Mode. If the player names the school after one of the schools in the game, the announcers will announce it in the game and its fight song will be played. For instance, if the player's created school has Florida in its title, players will do the Gator Chomp after touchdowns and the Gators fight song will play after scores and in the menus.
