REDWOOD CITY, Calif., - March 2, 2007 – Electronic Arts Inc., (NASDAQ: ERTS) announced today that former Boise State University quarterback and Tostitos Fiesta Bowl MVP Jared Zabransky will appear on the cover of NCAA® Football 08 , scheduled for release this summer under the EA SPORTS™ brand. Developed by EA Tiburon, NCAA Football 08 will be available on the PlayStation®2 and PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment systems, and Xbox® and Xbox 360™ video game systems from Microsoft.

“This has been a magical season for me and seeing my face on the cover of NCAA Football 08 is yet another unforgettable moment in what has already been a great year,” said Zabransky. “This video game truly embodies the spirit of college football and I'm very proud to be a part of it.”

Zabransky led Boise State to an undefeated season this year and most recently to a 43-42 overtime victory against Oklahoma at the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl in what some call one of the most exhilarating games in college football history. At the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, he completed 19-of-29 passes for 262 yards and will most likely be remembered for perfectly executing the Statue of Liberty play to win the game. In three seasons as the starting quarterback, Zabransky compiled a 33-5 record and was named a semifinalist for the Davey O'Brien and Maxwell Awards this past season.

In NCAA Football 08 , players will look to be a leader and become a legend on the field. With all-new Leadership Control, players now lead by example and control the action on the field and can increase their sphere of influence by improving their players' personal ratings on each big play. For the first time on Xbox 360 and PS3, the game will feature a new and deeper recruiting system and an all-new Campus Legend mode. NCAA Football 08 is everything that's great about college football.

I thought Calvin would be the guy...

I would love Zabransky in the 7th. The kid helped his team do the improbable in one of the greatest bowl games ever with a little razzle dazzle.

I'd take Chris Leak over Zabransky to be on the cover...I mean nobody saw that performance by Florida over OSU...

I thought it was a fine choice. The guy led Boise State to one of their best years in their college history. The only team I believe to end the season 13-0.

i'm buying it. this guy's better than a 7th rounder, imo. but then again, i could care less who's on the cover. Hunter Cantwell could be on the cover, it doesn't matter.

i was suurprised when i first heard, but i kind of like it, it's a change of pace over the last couple of years. kind of the perfect year to have a smaller school guy on the cover. what sucks though, is that they put the statue of liberty play in the game and the CPU will run it 5 times a game.

I am afraid of that as well. Also wondering as to how the AI will react to the play. :stirpot:

That's a cool choice. Doesn't matter to me who's on the cover though. Good honor for him though. They should put him doing the Statue of Liberty play on there though.

He deserves it. Give me one quarterback over the last three years with a better record. Maybe there is one, but as far as I know, Zabransky has been great and he topped it all off with a great performance against Oklahoma and then a great combine. He made Boise State the football Cinderella story!
