Hook And Lateral play

The Hook And Lateral play is in Boise State's offensive playbook under the "Hail Mary" section. It is labeled as "Circus".

Statue Of Liberty play

The Statue Of Liberty play is in Boise State's offensive playbook under the "ACE Bunch" formation. It is labeled as "Statue".

Jumping the field

When you are about five yards from the opponent's end zone, select a HB Dive as a play. As soon as the HB gets the ball, tap Square. You should now dive over the defenders and get a TD.

Boosting GPA in Campus Legend mode

A good way to boost your GPA is by doing extra studying. Some events like this are finishing a project in the library (+.4 GPA), fixing your computer for homework (+.2 GPA), or just studing when you have free time (+.1 GPA).

Exporting senior to Madden 08 in Campus Legend mode

When you begin your senior season and already have legend status, you will get the option of staying for your senior year or exporting your legend to Madden 08. If you stay, you will still be able to export your legend after your senior year.

Easier prospect drafting in Dynasty mode

When you first start the season, create a prospect and make sure to make his home state where your team is located. Then, talk to him on the phone about where he lives and the college being close. Most of the time, you will get a high ranking for that action.

During the pre-season, create a prospect that plays as a kicker or punter no matter what position you want to create. Make their hometown close to your campus. Customize the player to be as good at another position as desired, but set their kick power and kick accuracy to 0. They will be ranked as a one star recruit in the prospect database and will not usually even be offered a scholarship by other schools. Offer them a scholarship, and they will usually commit immediately. For example, if you make a one star kicker that no team wants, he will be ranked 99 as a QB.

Using injured players in Dynasty mode

If you have any injured player(s) on your roster going in to a game, start the game as normal. After the kickoff, pause the game and select restart. Once the game has restarted, your injured player(s) should be able to play.

Easy wins in Dynasty mode

Go to the settings, and change the quarter lengths to overtime. If you win the coin toss when the game begins, choose to play defense. When you score a touchdown while on offense, always go for a two point attempt (unless you only need to kick a field goal to win).

Better trophies in Dynasty mode

When creating your schedule, make sure to add as many ranked teams as possible. Try to go against the #1, #2, or #3 ranked team the most.

Faster trophies in Dynasty mode

Select a highly ranked team with good ratings (for example, USC or Michigan), and enter Dynasty mode. Simulate to the end of the season, and simulate all bowl games. You should earn two to four trophies depending on how well your team did. Then, save your profile, but not your dynasty. Exit Dynasty mode, and repeat as many times as desired.

Easy rivalry trophies

Go to the "Play Now" screen, and select two teams that can play for a rivalry trophy (for example, Colorado and Colorado State). Then, go to the stadium and weather options, and change the quarter length to one minute. Play the game, but do not switch teams in the middle or you will not get the trophy.

Hiding endzones

To make the endzones hidden, start a Play Now mode match. When you reach the field selection screen, set the game length to fifteen minutes, make the weather overcast cloudy, precipitation high, and temperature -20 degrees. If done correctly, in the upper corner should be a picture of a cloud with heavy snow. Start the game and by the second quarter there will be so much snow that the endzone lines and all other white lines will be gone.
