The first NCAA 14 Preview is here, and there is a change to the difficulty level. You can now set difficulty levels for offense and defense, individually. I have the levels set to Heisman for both, which is the hardest level there is. I play 10 minute quarters.
Ratings: UGA: 91 overall, 95 offense, 88 defense.
Ratings: Clemson: 93 overall, 95 offense, 90 defense.
There's a reason this is a video game, folks.
Georgia 24, Clemson 59
The game started off to a nice start. I won the coin toss and deferred to the 2nd half. Clemson went on a good drive against the young defense, ending in a touchdown to fire the first shot. A back and forth went between the teams, with one of Clemson's drives in the 2nd half ending in an interception by Leonard Floyd when Clemson was in the red zone, but ending in a field goal for Georgia. At the end of the 1st half, the game was tied 17-17.
The second half was one of the worst few quarters of football I've ever played in a game. Clemson scored 21 in the 3rd quarter and 21 in the 4th quarter. Georgia scored 7 in the entire 2nd half.
