Game Play

It's basically the same as a standard football game with some differences. The ball heats up after every play, so you must de-fuse the ball before it goes CRITICAL. You can only defuse the ball by getting to midfield or scoring a TD. The game has a unique one-player option where you get to choose the coach that you wish to play against.
