GameSpot is reporting this from EA:
NCAA Football 2006 is graduating an all-new mode designed to capture one of the most exciting aspects of college football. Named the Race for the Heisman, the new mode challenges players to go from high school draft pick to best collegiate player in the nation during their campus careers.
After working out in some drills for perspective coaches and selecting schools, freshman will be set up in a dorm room and take the field to prove their mettle on the gridiron. Once the created player walks the stage and throws his graduation cap in the air, his career can be continued into the pros by importing him into Madden 2006.
This sounds interesting. If only I hadn't joined the EA boycott.
