Who's Setting Off Bottle Rockets In The Carrier Dome?

I'm pretty sure that's the Carrier Dome, albeit a strangely smoky version of it, at the opening of this commercial for EA's NCAA Football 2009. Shockingly, SU's actual players don't show up otherwise.

I've always wondered, how do they get away with showing that "game footage" when that's not how the actual game look at all? Every sports game seems to be able to do this and it's always seemed disingenuous. Like a movie using scenes in a trailer that aren't actually in the movie (which is done from time to time as well...). Marketers, man...F'm.
