    NCAA Football 2005 is the 2004 installment of EA's NCAA Football franchise. It features former Pittsburgh Panthers receiver Larry Fitzgerald on the cover.

    The gameplay did not change much from the 2004 installment. Two significant additions are made:

    Home Field Advantage

    When playing a game at home, players have the ability to incite their crowds to cheer as loudly as possible by rapidly tapping an assigned button. The maximum amount of noise is determined by how loud the stadium is in real life. As the stadium gets louder, the volume increases, the screen starts shaking, the controller rumbles, and the offense has trouble keeping organized. If playing in a loud stadium, missed audibles and constant false start penalties are a common occurance. With this home field advantage system came a ranking of stadiums based on the noise their fans make. These rankings do not change over time.

    1. Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, Florida
    2. Neyland Stadium, Tennessee
    3. Ohio Stadium, OSU
    4. Tiger Stadium, LSU
    5. Autzen Stadium, Oregon
    6. Husky Stadium, Washington
    7. Kyle Field, Texas A&M
    8. Camp Randall Stadium, Wisconsin
    9. Memorial Stadium, Nebraska
    10. Stanford Stadium, Georgia
    11. Kinnick Stadium, Iowa
    12. Michigan Stadium, Michigan
    13. Lane Stadium, Virginia Tech
    14. Doak Campbell Stadium, FSU
    15. Notre Dame Stadium, Notre Dame
    16. Memorial Stadium, Clemson
    17. Beaver Stadium, Penn State
    18. Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, Oklahoma
    19. Jordan-Hare Stadium, Auburn
    20. Carrier Dome, Syracuse
    21. Bryant-Denny Stadium, Alabama
    22. KSU Stadium, Kansas State
    23. Mountaineer Field, West Virginia
    24. Martin Stadium, Washington State
    25. Miami Orange Bowl, Miami
    The second addition is the big hits system, where you can press a button before delivering a hit to make it harder, with a larger shot to miss.

    NCAA Football 2005, while received mainly positively, also had a major flaw with the passing game: far too many dropped balls. The amount of dropped balls was significantly higher than NCAA Football 2004, and the amount of dropped balls again went down for NCAA Football 2006.
