Conclusion: NCAA Football 2003 is arguably the best football game on the market. It will probably keep that title after the other football games come out. It is hard to compare college games with NFL games so that is left for gamers to debate.

Excerpt: Fight songs, rivalries, and pride--they're all key aspects of the college football experience.
