TIME AND WEATHER
—————-
The time that a game takes palce as well as the different weather options can
also be edited. There are various default Conditions that can be chosen as
well if you so wish. Here are the choices:

—>WEATHER CONDITIONS<—

———-
DIFFICULTY
———-
Both the Offensive and Defensive skills can be adjusted. This is a new feature
in NCAA Football 14 as previously, you were only able to edit the Defensive
Skill of the opposing team.

Here are the available difficulty levels, from easiest to hardest:

Freshman
Varsity
All-American
Heisman

————–
QUARTER LENGTH
————–
Finally, the length of the quarters can be adjusted as well. You can have the
length of each quarter be from 1 minute to 15 minutes.

========
PRACTICE
========
All of that information listed above pertains to the Practice Mode. The only
real difference is that you play against people on your own team for practices.

To Top

=====
COACH
=====
Exhibition from the sidelines. Make the plays and hope your team pulls through.
This is very similar to the same modes as seen in the Madden games and of
course, it is identical to the mode as found in previous versions of NCAA
Football.

To Top

===============
ONE-BUTTON MODE
===============
In this game mode, all the passing is done with one button. This makes it much
easier to complete passes as it will only allow you to throw the ball to
someone that is extremely likely to catch it. It’s basically an extremely
streamlined and easier version of the core game.

==============

==============

Those that don’t want to just focus on the team aspect of the game can use an
individual player instead. This is called Road to Glory. Players are able to
create their own student and customize them, then play through college football
seasons as their created player with the ultimate goal of earning the Heisman
Trophy.

That being said, you can also choose from these former college athletes to
play through this mode as well if you don’t want to go with your own created
player (once again listed in the order they appear in the game as opposed to
alphabetical order):

Robert Griffin III
Barry Sanders
Doug Flutie
Herschel Walker
Desmond Howard
Charlie Ward
Marcus Allen
Andre Ware
Eddie George
Carson Palmer
Archie Griffin
Tim Brown
Jim Plunkett
Tim Tebow
Mark Ingram
Matt Leinart

Existing players are also an option, but they lack names so I can’t list them
here. Using an existing player is not recommended because it will make you
ineligible for the leaderboards.

Complete list of all the achievements in NCAA Football 14. The PS3 version of
the game has Trophies instead of achievements, but they are interchangeable for
the most part. The only difference is that the trophies are ranked on a scale
of bronze to gold, whereas the achievements have numeric values. Furthermore,
earning all of the trophies in NCAA Football 14 will earn you the “Platinum

For the sake of simplicity, the achievements are listed only in the Xbox 360
