NCAA Football 2012: Stanford Amongst 5 Squads Most Exciting to Play As

0 of 5

    Let’s face it.

    When talking about a great football gaming experience, it’s almost always about the offense.

    There’s nothing more demoralizing than having your opponent march up and down the field with impunity against your defense.

    If YOU want to be the one doing the cleat stomping, here are the five teams that will afford you that opportunity.


1 of 5

    With quarterback Andrew Luck returning to Palo Alto, Stanford should again have one of the nation’s top offenses.

    Featuring dynamic complementary players WR Chris Owusu and RB Stepfan Taylor, you should take great delight in hearing your opponent’s infuriated screams as they try to somehow slow down your offensive juggernaut. 

Oklahoma State

2 of 5

    Coming off one of the greatest passing seasons in school history, Brandon Weeden is back for more.

    You will be stoked to have Weeden throwing to All-American Justin Blackmon behind an offensive line that returns intact.

    If your challenger wants to double or even triple-team Blackmon, OSU’s other receivers will make them pay.

Boise State

3 of 5

    Boise State always seems to have a high-flying offense, and with the return of senior quarterback Kellen Moore (who finished fourth in the Heisman Trophy voting last year), this year will be no different.

    With a solid offensive line protecting Moore and opening up holes for outstanding tailback Doug Martin, you should have no trouble tormenting whichever poor shlub who dares to challenge you.

University of Oregon

4 of 5

    The fast-breaking Oregon offense is a thing to behold, attacking defenses from every conceivable angle at breakneck speed.

    Quarterback Darron Thomas and stud RB LaMichael James will lead your personal Quack Attack against any gamer foolish enough to try and go Duck hunting.

University of Oklahoma

5 of 5

    “Oklahoma, where the passes come whistling down the plain…”

    Record=setting QB Landry Jones has never seen a pass he didn’t like, and he could approach 50 TD passes this year.

    Of course, running the football is an important part of the game, and…screw it, you have to let Jones throw the ball on almost every play.
