College Football USA '97 (Genesis)
|College Football USA '97|
College Football USA '97 was the last EA college football game on the Genesis.
Unused Stadium Names
Much like High Score's NHL 96 and College Football USA '96, almost all teams in the game have their stadiums listed, even though this information is never used in gameplay. However there are spelling mistakes, and one school never had its stadium and mascot defined!
Only teams with notable spelling or other mistakes are listed for space reasons. Almost all of these were present in College Football USA '96. Also listed is the Division 1AA mascot information, which is never displayed in game.
|University of Florida||Ben Hill Griffen Stadium|
(should be Griffin)
|Georgia Tech||Bobby Dod Stadium|
(should be Bobby Dodd)
(should be Kinnick)
|Ole Miss||Vaught-Hemmingway Stadium|
(should be Hemingway)
|Penn State||Beavers Stadium|
(should be Beaver)
|Texas A&M||Kyle Field Stadium|
(known as just Kyle Field)
|Univ. of Southern California||Los Angleles Memorial Coliseum|
(Neither UNT's stadium or mascot are defined. Team played at Fouts Field)
|Boise State (new for '97)||Bronco|
|Division 1AA (new for '97)||EA SPORTS Arena|
University of the Pacific
The University of the Pacific was in College Football USA '96, but they dropped their football program after the 1995 season.
The text displayed in the special endings is implemented in text, and among the available strings of ending text is one for UOP, identical to their appearance in CFB USA '96.
