The Ultimate NCAA Playbook Guide: Part II

Sometimes one of the hardest parts of getting your hands on NCAA Football is picking the playbook that is right for your style of play.

Picking a playbook is hard enough in Madden with less than 40 options, let alone more than 100. Over the next few days, Operation Sports will be taking the time to link to the playbooks EA Sports was kind enough to provide PDFs of on their web site, as well as tell you what formations are included in each playbook.

Hopefully this will help you narrow them down to a workable amount, so you can then nose through and find the perfect playbook for your game.    Today we'll be doing Florida Atlantic to Notre Dame. Stay tuned for all five defensive playbooks, the five generic offensive playbooks as well as the rest of the offensive team playbooks. Please note all offensive playbooks include a goalline and a hail mary formation.
