    Who do you guys like in this matchup, which we expect to play tonight?

    Penn St has been chewing up and spitting out the competition all season, with the exception of Ohio St, which had them dead to rights in week 13. The Nittany Lions are among the league leaders in scoring and defense, and lead the nation in turnover margin.

    USC has been improving week by week and is likely playing their best ball of the season, winning their last two user games by a combined score of 70-7. The play of the defense has been key, and the Trojans currently rank #1 in overall defense in the nation.

    To me, this game for USC comes down to turnovers and the running game. Penn St has feasted on forcing interceptions and turning them into points, if USC can be smart with the ball and not make mistakes, and be able to run enough to force Penn St out of their preferred zone defense looks, this should be a heck of a game.

    Penn St gets the victory and takes the national title. Y. GodWhy has had an incredible season and is primed to make PSU a champion.

    I'll settle for just having the game get played with no disconnects....

    My connection should be solid. 50 Mb line, with my xbox DMZ'd. I will ask my roommate to avoid maxing out the line, though that is rarely a problem unless someones steam updates/downloads a new game. I should also check my xbox IP and make sure the DMZ is still correct.

    L.A. to Seattle should be a better connection anyway.

    Wasn't meaning to insinuate that the disconnects were on you, that was more me venting about EA.

    How you and Dan have to deal with those issues, but it let Cheez and I pause the game twice for 15 minutes each and not disconnect I just don't understand, but then I'm not an IT guy.

    During the freeze? Or did you just have to take breaks throughout the game and it just didn't dc you for that extended amount of time?

    There are many times I can't pause a user game. That was the case in 2011 and 2012 versions. I think if I have the ball I can pause it, but it seems inconsistent. Maybe it depends on if I was invited to play, or I sent the invitation.

    The second choice. Cheez was gracious enough to pause on two separate occassions so I could attempt to get the baby back to sleep and the game miraculously never DC'd. You da man Cheez!

    Remember though, we got disconnected in the first time. As did Jayrah and I a couple nights ago.

    Good point, but I have to think the thought occurred to you that we might get disconnected with as long as our game was.
