The NCAA has changed a number of rules entering the 2012 season, including kickoff location, touchback rewards and cut blocking minutiae. Rest easy, those of you who were fretting about having to play a video game with incorrect touchback prizes, as NCAA Football 13 producer Ben Haumiller says the new rules will make their way in.
This means fewer yards yet more scoring, which sounds kind of dumb, but it's not really EA's fault. We may get sort of an early sense for how these rules will affect the actual game, since NCAA 13 comes out well before the season starts. Maybe, if it's all completely strange in the game, the NCAA will just go ahead and fix it in real life, too.
(If it worked like that, the NCAA would have long ago cracked down on recruiting exactly 10 players per week for one hour each, as it's a terrific formula.)
