I have a friend I play co-op/competitive multiplayer with, and another I sometimes do local splitscreen multiplayer with. I would really like to be able to have the two of us locally in splitscreen connect with my friend over the internet - is this possible?

From what I've seen the 'splitscreen' and 'online' options are separate so I'm not sure how to go about this. Would creating a local splitscreen game and then inviting my online friend work?

Yes, you can play split-screen and online at the same time, just choose the Multiplayer option in the main menu and choose Play Online, when the online finishes loading, choose Splitscreen on the menu on the left and choose a profile for your buddy, he'll join your party and you'll be able to invite your third friend and play CO-OP.
