August 31, 2009— Since the launch of NCAA Football 10 on July 14th, hundreds of thousands of college football fans have experienced the excitement of the all-new Season Showdown competition. The Season Showdown pre-season is now over and based on credits users have accumulated for their school of choice, the following institutions are in the top ten heading into the Season Showdown regular season:
1) Ohio State (more than 100 million credits earned during the pre-season)
6) Florida State
10) Notre Dame
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).

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.
* WEB BASED GAME! NCAA TRIVIA CHALLENGE
As the other web based feature, users can answer trivia questions that will be totaled and credited towards their school’s overall points.
