REDWOOD CITY, Calif., - March 2, 2007 Electronic Arts Inc., (NASDAQ: ERTS) announced today that former Boise State University quarterback and Tostitos Fiesta Bowl MVP Jared Zabransky will appear on the cover of NCAA Football 08, scheduled for release this summer under the EA SPORTS brand.  Developed by EA Tiburon, NCAA Football 08 will be available on the PlayStation2 and PLAYSTATION3 computer entertainment systems, and Xbox and Xbox 360 video game systems from Microsoft.    
“This has been a magical season for me and seeing my face on the cover of NCAA Football 08 is yet another unforgettable moment in what has already been a great year,” said Zabransky.  “This video game truly embodies the spirit of college football and I’m very proud to be a part of it.”
Zabransky led Boise State to an undefeated 2006 (13-0) season and most recently to a 43-42 overtime victory against Oklahoma at the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl in what some call one of the most exhilarating games in college football history.  At the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, he completed 19-of-29 passes for 262 yards and will most likely be remembered for perfectly executing the Statue of Liberty play to win the game.  In three seasons as the starting quarterback, Zabransky compiled a 33-5 record and was named a semifinalist for the Davey O’Brien and Maxwell Awards this past season.  
In NCAA Football 08, players will look to be a leader and become a legend on the field.  With all-new Leadership Control, players now lead by example and control the action on the field and can increase their sphere of influence by improving their players’ personal ratings on each big play.  For the first time on Xbox 360 and PS3, the game will feature a new and deeper recruiting system and an all-new Campus Legend mode.  NCAA Football 08 is everything that’s great about college football.  The game’s official website is www.ncaafootball08.com.
