I have to admit, I never quite caught the fever as bad since then, but now that I have little football fans of my own, I enjoy celebrating with them and helping them to have fun-filled experiences whether they are tossing a football around the yard, watching local college games, or creating fantasy play with EA Sports NCAA Football 12.

Like regular board games nights, video games nights are a regular staple in our weekly family traditions. Playing a game everyone likes is a great way to have fun together and stay connected, and though I’m more partial to board games for the face-to-face gathering around a table aspect, I have to say I’m totally tickled with the technology developments of modern video games and the benefits they have to offer.
|My youngest son loves that he can customize the player to have the same team and jersey number.|
I found out that the NCAA Football 13 has some new features that will certainly enhance the educational benefits and totally up the fun factor. The new Heisman Challenge will allow players to play as one of 10 former Heisman Trophy winners, like Robert Giffin III or Herschell Walker, in a quest to match their performance and recapture the Heisman Trophy. How cool is that?!
|Imaging, stats, leader boards, and choices are so realistic, it's a highly engaging experience.|
I’m looking forward to experiencing the new Reaction Time feature that slows down the game during key moments, increasing on-field awareness and allowing players to sense things before they happen. Sometimes the game play goes a little quick and I think this game feature will be a huge benefit (plus a lot of fun to watch!)

All the new features will make our NCAA13 video game night exciting, but I’d love to move it to electrifying to share some of my 1985 football fever experience with my sons. Part of that will include a fun tailgate at home (stay tuned!) and part of it will include personalizing the moment with the You’re Covered game day program that releases on July 10th to coincide with the NCAA Football 13 game release.
I also want to include you, Rural Mom readers, in our game day fun, so not only will I be detailing how we put our tailgating at home party together, there will also be a featured giveaway for Rural Mom readers… so, be sure to stop back for more football fever fun!
