With the start of the Season Showdown regular season, there are now five categories in which users can earn credits.  The winning school for each week is determined by a best of five format, so in addition to playing games on the console, it is imperative that users go online to play the web based games through the Facebook application (http://apps.facebook.com/seasonshowdown

 
) or through the Season Showdown website (http://seasonshowdown.easports.com
 
).

  • NEW!  ONLINE VS. SHOWDOWN OPPONENT
    Beginning today and throughout the regular season, in order to earn additional credits, Season Showdown participants will need to defeat their weekly Showdown opponent on Xbox 360 or PS3, which is determined by their school’s real world opponent for that week.  For week #1, the game of the week is Miami vs. Florida State, as this matchup pits two top 10 Season Showdown teams against one another.

    With the start of the regular Season Showdown season, the “Allies & Rivals” component is now live, as well.  This online poll allows users five votes to put towards any five schools of their choice, with no school receiving more than one vote.  By looking at who their rivals are playing each week, users could put votes towards their opponents’ team in hopes of keeping their rivals from winning that category.
