Fronted by All-American running back Clinton Portis of the National Champion Miami Hurricanes, the fast and furious gameplay of NCAA GameBreaker 2003 will provide players with thunderous tackles and helmet jarring hits. NCAA GameBreaker 2003 illustrates the depth and realism of college football with comprehensive playbooks featuring college formations including the wishbone, wing-t and option attack. Plays feature Total Control Passing® providing smooth and realistic player movements while doing spins, stiff arms, high steps, shoulder charges and dives over the line of scrimmage for six. Featuring Coaching Career Mode and Blue Chip Recruiting, no other title matches the complete college gridiron experience of NCAA GameBreaker 2003.

"With detailed, high-resolution player models and complete playbooks featuring true college-style formations and plays, NCAA GameBreaker 2003 for the PlayStation 2 is a must have for the college football enthusiast," said Ami Blaire, director, product marketing, Sony Computer Entertainment America. "NCAA GameBreaker 2003 is a perfect example of how 989 Sports has reestablished itself as a true sports brand by continuing to push the envelope for the most realistic sports games on the market."

This year the 989 Sports team has implemented the first ever two-man booth made up of play-by-play legend Keith Jackson and color commentary from Tim Brant, which will have players feeling closer than ever to all the non-stop football action. Whether setting up a classic match-up between conference rivals or seeing if players' knowledge of the X's and O's is enough to work their way up from special teams coach at a smaller Division I-A school to head coach at one of the nation's premier universities, NCAA GameBreaker 2003 provides a complete college football experience.
