Ok, this is my first Achievement Guide so I hope you will cut me a little slack :p I love football games and I thought I had some very helpful tips for getting 1000g on this year's edition of NCAA Football, so here is my guide. Keep in mind that if you ever need additional help on an achievement, you can adjust the Custom AI sliders in House Rules. Also, all achievements except Veteran are obtainable by using Freshman difficulty. Enjoy!

Set up a game in Exhibition. Choose any team you feel comfortable using and set the Offense to Air Raid. Set the game on Freshman difficulty and give yourself a decent amount of time to score 35 points. I did 7 minute quarters just to be safe. The achievement will unlock at the end of the game.

Set up a game in Exhibition. Choose any team you feel comfortable using and set the Offense to Air Raid. Set the game on Freshman difficulty and give yourself a decent amount of time (I suggest 7 minutes.) Just keep running the ball with Shotgun or any other run plays that you can find until you get 100 yards. The achievement will unlock at the end of the game.

Set up a game in Exhibition. Choose any team you feel comfortable using and set the Offense to Multiple. Set the game on Freshman difficulty and give yourself a decent amount of time (I suggest 7 minutes.) Multiple offense has many formations, so just select a formation (such as Ace - Big) and run one play from each until you have used 10. Either keep count of how many you have used or just use one play from each. There are around 20 formations. The achievement will unlock at the end of the game.

Set up a game in Exhibition. Choose any team that has a good running back, such as Alabama or West Virginia, and set the Offense to One Back. Set the game on Freshman difficulty and give yourself a decent amount of time (I suggest 7 minutes.) Use only run plays until you get 200 yards rushing. It does not have to be 200 yards with one player. The achievement will unlock at the end of the game.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1427/-aLeYg==.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41415-Options.html)Options (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41415-Options.html)25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.pngScore 35+ points in a game running an Option offense (excludes co-op).

Set up a game in Exhibition. Choose any team that you feel comfortable using and set the Offense to Option Run. Set the game on Freshman difficulty and give yourself a decent amount of time (I suggest 7 minutes.) You do not have to run only Option plays to get this achievement. Just score 35 points and the achievement will unlock at the end of the game.

Set up a game in Exhibition. Choose any team you feel comfortable using and set the Offense to Option Run. Set the game on Freshman difficulty and give yourself a decent amount of time (I suggest 7 minutes.) Use passing plays from Shotgun until you get 300 yards passing. The achievement will unlock at the end of the game.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1427/-aLeYg==.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41417-Pistol.html)Pistol (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41417-Pistol.html)25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.pngGain 100 yards rushing with a QB and a HB while running Pistol offense in a game (excludes co-op).

Set up a game in Exhibition. Choose a team that has a fast quarterback and running back, such as Ohio State or Virginia Tech and set the Offense to Pistol. Set the game on Freshman difficulty and give yourself a decent amount of time (I suggest 7 minutes.) Run the quarterback (I ran from Shotgun) until you get 100 yards and then do the same with the running back. The achievement will unlock at the end of the game.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1427/-4PX1w==.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41418-West-Coast/Pro-Style.html)West Coast/Pro Style (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41418-West-Coast/Pro-Style.html)25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.pngUsing a West Coast/Pro Style offense, complete passes to 8 different receivers (excludes co-op).

Set up a game in Exhibition. Choose a team you feel comfortable using and set the Offense to Pro Style. Set the difficulty on Freshman and give yourself a decent amount of time (I suggest 7 minutes.) Complete a pass to the starting receivers on the team, and keep track of who you have completed a pass to. Then press Start, go to Strategy, then Depth Chart and put different Wide Receivers in the place of 1,2,3, and 4. Make sure you are running a four WR formation or you won't get to use all four of those receivers. The achievement will unlock at the end of the game.

Set up a game in Exhibition. Choose a team you feel comfortable using and set the Offense to Run and Shoot. Set the difficulty to Freshman and give yourself a decent amount of time (I suggest 7 minutes.) Complete a pass to all 5 receivers in the 5 WR and keep passing until you get 300 yards. The achievement will unlock at the end of the game.

Set up a game in Exhibition. Choose a team you feel comfortable using and set the Offense to Spread. Set the difficulty to Freshman. I did 1 minute quarters on this one. Just make sure you get the ball first if you do so. On the opening drive, run a play and then hold :ybut:. This will keep the teams in no huddle. Keep running plays and holding :ybut: after the play until you drive down and score. This achievement unlocks right when you score.

Set up a game in Exhibition. Choose a team you feel comfortable using and set the Offense to Spread. Set the difficulty to Freshman. I did 1 minute quarters on this one. Just make sure you get the ball first if you do so. Get down in the red zone. Run a play but do not score. Then hold down :ybut: to go into no huddle. When the quarterback lines up, press X and select an audible. Keep trying until you score a touchdown on the audible. Do this once again in the same game. The achievement will unlock at the end of the game.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1427/-aLeYg==.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41422-There-He-Goes---.html)There He Goes...

Set up an Exhibition game on Freshman difficulty with a fast, elusive running back like Noel Devine from West Virginia. Play against any team with a D rated defense, such as Western Kentucky. Choose the One Back offensive style. Make sure you are AT LEAST 50 yards away from the goalline. Choose a pitch play and run to the outside. On Rookie difficulty, it should be easy to get a long touchdown run. If you are having trouble, you can also change the game sliders.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1427/-4PX1w==.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41423-Take-a-Stab-Downfield.html)Take a Stab Downfield (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41423-Take-a-Stab-Downfield.html)15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.pngComplete a pass for 50 or more yards in a Play Now, Dynasty, or Road to Glory game (excludes co-op).

Set up an Exhibition game on Freshman difficulty. Choose a team you are comfortable using that has a decent quarterback and decent wide receivers. Play against any team with a D rated defense, such as Western Kentucky. On Freshman against a bad defense, it is best to just choose Hail Mary or any straight route and throw it deep.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1427/+iE8Lg==.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41424-Formation-Sub-Success.html)Formation Sub Success (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41424-Formation-Sub-Success.html)5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.pngScore a touchdown with a player subbed in using Formation Subs (excludes co-op).

Get in the red zone (20 yards from scoring.) Press Start, go to Strategy and then Formation Subs. Use a formation sub on a certain formation for your running back and then use that formation until you score.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1427/-aLeYg==.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41425-1st-Option-For-6.html)1st Option For 6 (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41425-1st-Option-For-6.html)5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.pngScore a touchdown handing off to the fullback on a triple option play (excludes co-op).

Choose the Option Run offense and get down inside the 5 yard line. Choose Triple Option, and while running the play HOLD down the :abut: button instead of just pressing it. This will hand it off to your fullback. Keep doing so until you get into the endzone.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1427/-4PX1w==.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41426-Speed-Reader.html)Speed Reader (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41426-Speed-Reader.html)5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.pngScore a touchdown on a QB Choice run play (excludes co-op).

This is a little tricky because the play doesn't actually say QB Choice. Get down inside the 5 yard line in a game with Option Run (several other offenses have it.) Choose the play "Read Option." You can either hold down :abut: to hand off to the running back, or simply press it to run the quarterback. Keep trying until you get into the endzone for the touchdown.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1427/-aLeYg==.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41427-Draw-Me-a-Touchdown.html)Draw Me a Touchdown (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41427-Draw-Me-a-Touchdown.html)5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.pngScore a touchdown running a draw play on 3rd and 6+ yards (excludes co-op).

Get down to about the 10 yard line. Run the ball on 1st and 2nd down, but do not gain more than 4 yards. Choose a draw, I preferred Shotgun draw, and run around the defense instead of through the middle. On Freshman, it is easy to run around them and into the endzone for the touchdown.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1427/-4PX1w==.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41428-Hero.html)Hero (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41428-Hero.html)10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.pngScore a touchdown as time expires to win the game (excludes co-op).

Set up an Exhibiton game, with Freshman difficulty and 1 minute quarters. Make sure you will get the ball at halftime. Run the clock out, DO NOT score, and prevent the computer from scoring. In the 4th quarter, get into the red zone and run the clock down to 3 seconds. Make sure you have a timeout to call. Then select a play that you think can get a quick touchdown. I used Shotgun myself.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1427/+iE8Lg==.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41429-Balanced-Attack.html)Balanced Attack (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41429-Balanced-Attack.html)15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.pngGain 200 rushing yards and 200 passing yards in the same game (excludes co-op and Road to Glory).

Set up an Exhibition game with Freshman difficulty and about 7-8 minute quarters to be safe. Use a good overall team, such as Alabama and simply gain 200 rushing and 200 passing yards. The achievement will unlock at the end of the game.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1427/+8HEvQ==.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41430-The-D-Is-For---.html)The D Is For...

Possibly the easiest achievement in the game. Just set up an Exhibition game on Freshman difficulty and 1 minute quarters. Play a horrible team, like Western Kentucky. Prevent them from getting 100 yards total. The achievement will unlock at the end of the game.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1427/+iE8Lg==.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41431-Red-Zone-Perfection.html)Red Zone Perfection (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41431-Red-Zone-Perfection.html)15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.pngComplete a Play Now or Dynasty Mode game with a Red Zone Efficiency rating of 100% (excludes co-op).

Set up an Exhibition game on Freshman difficulty and 1 minute quarters. Make sure you have at least one Red Zone trip, or I don't think it will unlock. Score a touchdown or field goal while in the red zone and then run out the rest of the game clock.

Set up an Exhibition game on Freshman difficulty and 1 minute quarters. Just simply do not allow your opponent to score. Make sure your opponent has at least one trip into the red zone. Should get this one while trying for "The D is For" or vice-versa.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1427/+8HEvQ==.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41433-Lock-It-Up.html)Lock It Up (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41433-Lock-It-Up.html)15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.pngWith Player Lock on, return an interception for a TD (excludes co-op).

This is actually much easier than I thought it would be. Set up an Exhibition match on Freshman difficulty with as much time as you want. Go into House Rules > Custom AI and set the User Interceptions and Pass Coverage to 100. Then when you play defense, click in the LS to lock onto a player. Keep doing this until the quarterback throws in your direction and return it for a touchdown. It's much easier with the adjusted AI sliders. I used middle linebacker to get it.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1427/+8HEvQ==.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41434-In-Your-Crosshairs.html)In Your Crosshairs (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41434-In-Your-Crosshairs.html)10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.pngSpotlight a receiver and get an interception on him in a Play Now or Dynasty game (excludes co-op).

On defense, hold the LT and then press the button over the receiver you wish to spotlight. Keep doing so until the quarterback throws to that receiver and you intercept it. You DO NOT have to return the interception for a touchdown.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/1427/+iE8Lg==.jpg (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41435-Veteran.html)Veteran (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41435-Veteran.html)15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.pngWin a game by 35+ points on Heisman difficulty (excludes co-op).

This achievement is also much easier than it seems. Here's how I did it: Exhibition game on Heisman difficulty with 8 minute quarters. I used Alabama and played against Western Kentucky. I won 52-0. Your defense is so good on Heisman, you shouldn't have any trouble stopping them. If you are still having trouble, you can always adjust the Custom AI sliders to help by putting the CPU sliders to 0 and User sliders to 100.

Alternative method [Thanks to Exempt CrzyArab]: You can also get this achievement by SuperSim. Just select a good team, like Alabama or Texas, and play against a D- team with 12 minute quarters. Just SuperSim the entire game and you should win by a large margin.

Simply create 5 or 6 5 star recruits from the hometown of your college and you should easily get the #1 recruiting class. Make sure recruiting is set to Freshman.

Set recruiting to Freshman. Go into recruiting with a good team, such as Alabama or Texas, and find a prospect that has a very bad school as the one you will be competing against. The downplayed against Tulane when I got it. Choose to call for 6 topics. Make sure the pitch topic is good for your school and bad for theirs. If not, use one of your 3 switches. When you find one that is good (A or A+) for your school and bad for theirs (C+ or lower), compare the schools. By using a school with poor rankings, you should get about 270 points on 6 topics. You will probably need to look for 2 or 3 star recruits for this.

Here's what I did for this achievement and it was very, very easy. I set up a new Dynasty with Alabama and recruiting on Freshman. I created a 99 overall recruit from Tuscaloosa, Alabama (where the university is located) and offered him a scholarship week one. He committed instantly. So just create a recruit from the hometown of your school and you should get it easily.

Make sure recruiting is on Freshman. Find a school that is soft to a school and has you as their #2 school. It works better against bad teams, so you can downplay their pitches. Just downplay 6 topics on that school for that prospect every week until he switches to your school.

Choose a team (I used Alabama) and make a LOT of the older players 95 or higher. Now with a bunch of players 95 or higher, you can sim through the season and will at least have a decent record. When you go to the players leaving section of the offseason, there should be several players wanting to go into the Pro Draft. Just spend 60 minutes on each one until you get one to stay. If you want the achievement bad enough, you can purchase the Coaching Seminar time saver with 160 Microsoft points to make it easier.

The following method here is copied directly from SmoothPancakes (Thank you very much, SmoothPancakes!]

Once you have your prospects created, the teams ahead of you, create coaches and take over their teams and remove the prospect from their recruiting boards. Then sit there doing whatever you have to do with multiple coaches/teams until you are the only one with any chance of signing him. Then, when you feel a signing is imminent, delete all the coaches you created (until you are only in control of your team).

I can confirm this works. I got a 5 star HB (non-created actually) from Wisconsin with my teambuilder Alaska State team by taking over Michigan and sabotaging their recruitment of the prospect. In fact, I got the achievement AFTER the fact. The guy signed with me before I deleted any of the 5-10 or so coaches I had created (and had sabotaging recruiting for LSU, Michigan, Ohio State, Florida, Texas, etc) after week 10. I just deleted the coaches, simmed forward a week into week 12, and the achievement popped for me.

Ok, I got this achievement by purchasing the Extra Pipeline State Time Saver. I do not want to sound like I am talking you into paying 160 points for an achievement. Just wanted to let everyone know that it will work.

Non-Time Saver method: [Thanks to pivotalRAGE IV] Pick Vandy as your team because it already has Texas and Florida as pipelines. Go into your season and fill your board with 1-3 star recruits from California ONLY (The lower the better). The achievement is based on the number of players coming out of a specific state not the quality of the players. Go into your recruiting menu and make sure that you go down to the bottom left hand corner to select your Recruiting Plan. The first screen there has an option for the CPU to assist in placing players on and off your board. Set that to OFF so that the CPU doesn't take any of the players away. Sim the entire season and since you will be competing for players against schools like SJSU and CSU you are likely to sign at least 4-5 at which point I got California as a pipeline and thus the achievement.

Time Saver method: Purchase the Extra Pipeline State Time Saver. Set up a new Dynasty with Vanderbilt. Yes, I said Vanderbilt haha. Vanderbilt already has Texas and Florida as pipeline states, so all you have to do is add California with the Extra Pipeline and there is your achievement.

Choose a 99 RE from existing players. Go into House Rules and turn penalties off. Now you can go across the line of scrimmage before the snap and stand next to the quarterback. When he snaps the ball, sack him. Should get the achievement in around 3 games.

Spread no huddle does not unlock until the end of the game. The Aggressive spread one unlocks right when you score.

for RED ZONE PERFECTION and RED ZONE SHUTOUT you do need at least one score and one score attempt from the red zone respectively.

On SPEED READER the easiest way to find that READ OPTION is to select your play by type - then scroll to option - then scroll left to the play...again you must make sure you chose option offense.

I think for Red Zone Shutout the team has to be in the red zone once. My first game was 52-0 and it didn't pop because the other team went 3 and out every time. Also for This D is For... kick return yards count, so if you want the achievement kick/punt out of bounds.

Instant Commit Achievement:


Here is what I did. Hope this helps out. For the first two weeks my Rank 1 person was already interested in UF as his number one choice. The first week of recruiting I did the 6 topics and didn't pitch anything, I just found out what he was interested in. The second week I did another six topics. This time if he didn't like the topic I changed it and pitched/brought down everything A+ or High and up for him. Bringing down school 2 helped out by bad talking them. Still do not offer a scholarship. Week three I repeated week two. When week four came around I did one topic call and offered a scholarship. Instant accept.


This may not work for everyone but it worked perfectly for me.

All you need to do is choose a 6 star team and recruit an in-state 1 star recruit. Then downplay every pitch against a low end school on his list. This can be done in the first week of recruiting. Choose a six pitch phone call on the prospect and if a random pitch comes up that is less than an "A" rating, then you have three choices to choose another pitch. With most six star schools you do not have many ratings below "A". The greater the difference between your rating and the other teams rating the more points you will take away on that pitch. So it should be easy breezy against the likes of say Akron or UAB.

Also FYI:

I started my first Dynasty with ALABAMA because they start off as #1 and there is an achievement for holding #1 all season.

For the INSTANT COMMIT one - I created 4 prospects before the season in my home town and offered them all a scholarship on a 10 min call. The first one popped the achievement.

One thing to keep in mind is that there is another use for the same strategy as playing all the bowl games. You mess with teams by playing their games and losing bad - This will help with being the only team undefeated at the end of the season and possibly ruin some Heisman contendors. A strategy that has worked for me in the past.

Strange that you mentioned that actually, because I am doing that right now to be the only undefeated team.

So I'm gonna make sure the latter 3 lose their bowl games and then defeat Washington for the achievement.

bLaKgRaVy
07-15-2010, 02:36 PM
A suggestion maybe...

It might be helpful, for the in-game achievements with certain offenses, to put in the guide maybe 2 or 3 teams that use that particular offense. From what I gathered while playing, you can't choose the offense of a team, and your guide might be misleading saying "Choose any team you feel comfortable using and set the Offense to xx offense." Unless someone knows how to change the offense to whatever you want. I was basically playing Dynasty games, and I know it can't be chosen there. Maybe in Play Now?

For the "Campus Legend," "Head & Shoulders Above" and "Greatness" achievements, they are exactly the same as last year. I got them by editing the RE on Notre Dame to all 99's and using him in RTG by simming the seasons. I got the "Head & Shoulders" the first season, "Campus" the second and "Greatness" the third. Easy peesy. Might want to take a look at last year's guide and somehow incorporate that into yours. The points I got them on were ~175, ~300 and ~840.

For "Don't Call it a Comeback," what I did is right after the season ended and people were leaving, I had maybe 3 or 4 players that were 95 or above. One was a senior, 3 were juniors. Of those juniors, 2 had pro contracts. The first one didn't budge, but on the second one, I convinced him to stay. I think it's random who stays or who goes, but I think it helps having an undefeated record (I used an edited Alabama).

For "Crash the Party," it's the same as last year again. Use Boise State and go undefeated (by winning and saving or reloading if you lose). Win your Conference Championship also and the achievement should unlock after the Bowl weeks are done.

Otherwise great guide, it's helped me a lot.


Also, for "1st Option for 6," what team has a triple option? I know that might be a dumb question, but the 4 teams I played with last night (Alabama, Texas, Boise State and some 2-star school) didn't have a triple option play.

EDIT: Georgia State has a triple option.

Yep, RE, for Right End, defense. It's easy if you pick Notre Dame since there are only 3 teams in that conference, and Army & Navy aren't real competitors.

I might be doing something wrong here, but when I sim in RTG, I only get 40 points or so a season, not close to 200. Is there something I'm missing?

Are you maxing out his stats to 99? Don't just make him a 99 overall, maximize his defensive stats instead of say Throwing Power or Spectacular Catch. I had around 200 at the end of the first season, around 600 at the end of the second and I think 900 or so at the end of the third. You don't have to go week to week and win all the games, just go to week 15 and sim all of them at the same time. One thing I don't like this year is that your stats don't update after simming after every week like previous years. It waits until the simming is done then tallies everything. Not an improvement.

Yeah I maxed out his stats that were needed for him to be great, I sim a game and he has 0 tackles. I must need to change the Depth Chart before going into RTG. Does difficulty affect the points accumulated? Its annoying that I'm getting 40 points a season, but you're getting 200+...

I had the difficulty on Freshman. The only time I changed it was when I did a Dynasty game to go for the Heisman difficulty win achievement. All others I have gotten on Freshman.

Yea, maybe change the depth chart. I edited the better/first RE anyway; maybe you did the other one. That's a possibility. Also, turn fatigue off. That way he doesn't get tired and get subbed out. I also had offsides off, but I don't think that has anything to do with the game if you are simming.

07-15-2010, 08:53 PM
A suggestion maybe...

It might be helpful, for the in-game achievements with certain offenses, to put in the guide maybe 2 or 3 teams that use that particular offense. From what I gathered while playing, you can't choose the offense of a team, and your guide might be misleading saying "Choose any team you feel comfortable using and set the Offense to xx offense." Unless someone knows how to change the offense to whatever you want. I was basically playing Dynasty games, and I know it can't be chosen there. Maybe in Play Now?



Yes, it can be changed in Play Now.

Maybe try week to week then, as in saving if you win and reloading if you lose. Guaranteed bowl game, and you might get more points. It'll take a lot longer, though. It's funny, last year's achievements were the same, and they unlocked for me with no problem last year as well. I would have figured that these were gimme achievements with no work involved.

Boise State already has 2 of the states, California and Texas, as pipelines. I got the Time Saver and added New York. Nothing. I guess that explains the NEW pipelines in the achievement description.

This is actually much easier than I thought it would be. Set up an Exhibition match on Freshman difficulty with as much time as you want. Go into House Rules > Custom AI and set the User Interceptions and Pass Coverage to 100. Then when you play defense, click in the LS to lock onto a player. Keep doing this until the quarterback throws in your direction and return it for a touchdown. It's much easier with the adjusted AI sliders. I used middle linebacker to get it.


you can also get this one in the Road to Glory mode. I intercepted my first pass with my CB in the HS playoffs and took it back and got the achievement

Program Changer (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../game/ncaa-football-11/achievement/41441-Program-Changer.html)25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.pngSign a 5-star QB or HB with a 2-star prestige school in a single team Dynasty (no ATH).

This was by far the HARDEST achievement in the game for me. It takes a lot of patience, so be ready to get very frustrated. Here is the method I used: I started up a Dynasty on Freshman with Freshman recruiting also. I also set it on 1 minute quarters. I found a recruit that had his favorite school as TCU. So I went in an spent 60 minutes on him every week. I offered him a scholarship in week 2. Since TCU isn't a premiere school like Alabama, I could compare pitches and downplay many qualities of TCU. Such as Conference Prestige and Early Playing Time. I did all 3 promises for him. I did guarantee Freshman All-American, guarantee Conference Championship, and one of the others I don't remember. I scheduled a visit Week 10 against the Florida Gators. Around Week 8-9, he became soft to TCU so I thought it was over. All the previous times, the soft commits had ended up committing to that school. I played the visit game against Florida and won 28-0. After I advanced to the week, *pop* Achievement Unlocked. =D

If anyone has a better method, I would definitely appreciate it.

What 2-star school did you use for your dynasty? TCU? Because when you say that the recruit "became soft to TCU so I thought it was over," I take that as you didn't use TCU.


EDIT: This from PS3T.org:
"Program Changer - Sign a 5-star QB or HB with a 2-star prestige school in a single team Dynasty (no ATH).
Create a team using team builder. Make them 2 star and all there pitches A+. It will give you an option to create a prospect so do that. Make sure he is from the town your team plays in. Every week call him for 60 minutes giving him good pitches. When you feel he is starting to like your team, offer him a scholarship."

I would guess this would work if you create a team not in a state that has another prestigious school, like Texas, Penn, Florida, etc... Maybe a midwest state?

How many points did you score in that game? "Air Raid" requires you to score 35+ points in a game using the Air Raid offense. Also, did you use the same HB for all those 127 yards? I know it doesn't say to use the same HB, but that might be it, also.

You can get between 15-20 sacks a game you need around 50 sack to earn the top spot in the leaderboard. I got it in 3 games my stats were 77 tackles and 52 sacks.

Setup Shop In the Big 3 - 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.pngIn a single team Dynasty, develop new pipelines in Texas, California, and Florida.

Ok, I got this achievement by purchasing the Extra Pipeline State Time Saver. I do not want to sound like I am talking you into paying 160 points for an achievement. Just wanted to let everyone know that it will work.

Non-Time Saver method: ? [Would appreciate any suggestions]

Time Saver method: Purchase the Extra Pipeline State Time Saver. Set up a new Dynasty with Vanderbilt. Yes, I said Vanderbilt haha. Vanderbilt already has Texas and Florida as pipeline states, so all you have to do is add California with the Extra Pipeline and there is your achievement.

From PS3T.org:
"Pick a team that is not from Texas, California, or Florida. I picked Notre Dame as they already have California and Florida as pipeline states. You can spend $2.00 on the PSN store and buy a new pipeline team. That way you just pick Texas and trophy unlock with out much work. If you don't want to do that just focus on signing recruits from Texas."

Would this work? I haven't tried it yet.

For the Set Up Shop in the Big 3 achievement, just choose Alabama, clear your recruiting board, search through recruits that are from TX and CA and add them. Just choose about 18 from each that are interested in your school, it doesn't matter if they are 1 star or 5 star. By the end of my first season, I had recruited 10 from CA and 13 from TX, giving me the achievement.

I just want to confirm that What a Weekend and Best Class Ever can be simmed. I edited all the Bama players' stats up to 99 and then simmed a season in dynasty. And got What a Weekend to pop a little less than midway through season 1. And Best Class Ever by simply simming the offseason.

edit: This method also netted me Mr. Efficiency and Strike the Pose. Then in the offseason I conviced one of my 99 guys to not go to the NFL for Don't Call it a Comeback. And my team destroyed everyone, so all I had to do was supersim the national championship game and I got Untouchable, Survivor, and Perfect from the Start as well.

I realize the methods for getting these have already been laid out. I simply wanted to add that simming (& super simming) works and saves some time.

I dont know if anyone said this, but another easy way to get the invite from a non BCS conference is to set the game to custom conferences and then move a strong team like Alabama to an independant. You can then set up your season playing nothing but terrible teams and you can play them all at home. You might not be number one due to your easy schedule but you'll for sure get a BCS bid. Also you could just pick Notre Dame as they're already an independant. While in the real world they receive an automatic bid if they're in the top 8 of the BCS, I'm not sure if that's implemented in this game.

For the Heisman Win Can you use two controllers? what about using two controllers for the rest of the achievements?

also besides setting up ur 99 player (in years past i've gotten it easily by simming with QB, HB, or WR) if at end of season others are moving up the heisman ladder & ur stats are ok but not great (as in ur coach subbing for you despite settingts for low subbing on ur guy. its usually in blowout wins he subs u out at halftime) i set up 1 minute quarters & penalties off. it wouldnt hurt to adjust the speed difference slider so most players cant catch u if u have a 99 player with 99 speed. then i played as the team with the rising heisman candidates & made him get all kinds of horrible yards, negative & sacks or tackles in the end zone & that works well getting them out of the Heisman race--usually.

i think it was NCAA 08 or 09 where i have had player break all the records in passing & be the front-runner all year & still not win the Heisman, then i'd reload save & he'd win Heisman--seemed random. so definitely save b4 the awards are given out & if you dont get it despite being the frontrunner reload the save a few times especially if you are so obviously the best candidate. i am not sure if ea ever fixed that but i never take a chance plus i have more than 1 save going just in case staggered a few weeks back just in case i need to do the above on other candidates.

Also, purchasing the pipeline state option is about the stupidest idea I have ever heard. Encouraging this method only adds to EA's quest to be more greedy.

Personally, I purchased the game, but plan on keeping the online code in tact to resell the game on Ebay.

RockBandit Phil, for the Program Changer achievement. One way to do is created prospects in the home town of the team you choose. You can go either with a regular team, or a Team Builder team that has maxed out Program Ratings, but is only marked as a 2 star team.

Another thing that worked for me, that I posted in a different thread.

In addition to the first post, an extremely easy, albeit a bit cheesy way of doing it. Once you have your prospects created, the teams ahead of you, create coaches and take over their teams and remove the prospect from their recruiting boards. Then sit there doing whatever you have to do with multiple coaches/teams until you are the only one with any chance of signing him. Then, when you feel a signing is imminent, delete all the coaches you created (until you are only in control of your team).

I can confirm this works. I got a 5 star HB (non-created actually) from Wisconsin with my teambuilder Alaska State team by taking over Michigan and sabotaging their recruitment of the prospect. In fact, I got the achievement AFTER the fact. The guy signed with me before I deleted any of the 5-10 or so coaches I had created (and had sabotaging recruiting for LSU, Michigan, Ohio State, Florida, Texas, etc) after week 10. I just deleted the coaches, simmed forward a week into week 12, and the achievement popped for me.

So as long as you can sign a 5-star QB or HB at any point during the season (even if you create multiple coaches to sabotage other teams), as soon as you delete those coaches and advance to the next week, the achievement will unlock for you.

There is a 7-day free trial for the Online Pass, making people who rent or buy used able to go online for a week. The Teambuilder way to get Program Changer is easier if you use this method; just have to make sure you get it in a week. The downloaded team is still usable after the week expires, so you can activate the free trial and download as many Teambuilder teams as you want, although for this specific achievement, only one is necessary.

Also, purchasing the pipeline state option is about the stupidest idea I have ever heard. Encouraging this method only adds to EA's quest to be more greedy.

I do agree. I used Alabama and in pre-season picked only players from California and Texas (as Florida is already a pipeline). Unlocked with no problem (I went undefeated) after one of the final things you do in the offseason.

Yea, that's how I'm doing this, to an extent. I'm going to bowl week with two controllers but only my profile signed in on the first controller. For the second controller, no profile is signed in. That's important; don't sign a profile in on the second controller. Then I start a two player game, do the kickoff, then super-sim to the end. One game takes about 2 minutes total with loading times. No matter who wins, my profile gets the trophy. Easy peesy.

Play through a season of solo Dynasty on Freshman difficulty with a good running back, such as Mark Ingram from Alabama. Make sure you have 100 carries and you should easily get 6 yards a carry on Freshman

this should work but i reccomend using a faster rb. i started a dynasty with alabama but he is extremely slow

Or, if you're just going for the achievement, edit that HB to a 99 then run a dynasty. I did that for both the QB and HB achievements and they both popped after the bowl games my first dynasty.

Anyone having issues with program changer? I didnt get the achievement despite signing a 5 star HB...I did use a teambuilder team and made them great, but their prestige is only 2 star, I also created a player from that state to make him closer to home...is it possible that the created player screwed it up?

I've tried to get it yet without success, but plan on using BrutishMuffin's method next. Is that the method you are using or are you trying another way on your own? I would suggest using that method since it seems the easiest way.

Or maybe the HB was an ATH also? That could be the problem, as the achievement states "No ATH's." But you said you created the player, so that can't be it. Unless the HB you signed wasn't the one you created...

He was a HB, I created him and he was five star...so Im not sure...I also put my team in a better conference, dont know if that screwed things up....I have saves before that so Im gonna rerun it, if it doesnt work I will take over vandy....

I also took over the other teams that were higher up than me and I had them stop recruiting him...this is the issue...just reread the achievement and its a single team dynasty

went to my save before he committed, deleted my other coaches and it the achievement popped up

I used Alabama and maxed out the QB, HB and 2 WR's stats to 99. I simmed week to week, making sure I won by 21+ points. If I fell to #2 (I did at week 8 I think), I just reloaded and made the team that became #1 lose their game.

My QB got the Heisman and it took nothing to get a player to stay another year. If you use my method, you can also unlock Untouchable, Perfect from the Start, Mr. Efficiency and Picking Up Yards. Also Burn That Shirt if you redshirt a 99'd player (I did the HB) before the season starts then take it off during game 1 and do nothing but run plays getting massive yards and TD's.

All in one dynasty season. Easy.

For the achievement you can use two controllers. I picked alabama and the other team was western kentucky. I had western kentucky run curls at the first down and put my defender at the 10 yard line. To make sure that interceptions were likely I changed the interception ai to 100. Now just wait till the curl happens and throw to the side where the locked player is. May take a few attempts to time the interception but can get very quickly.

You can, that's how I did it using two controllers. Sign in yourself on controller one but don't sign anyone in on controller two. Sim through a season using anybody. At Bowl Week, start at the first game and choose to play it. After the kickoff, super-sim it. No matter who wins, your profile will get the trophy (provided you didn't sign in a profile on controller two). It takes 2 minutes from choosing the game you want to play until accepting the trophy with load times (I timed it). 34 bowl games, ~68 minutes.

If you only have one controller, you can super-sim and hope for the best or play the game out on 1 minute quarters and win each game.

I found that a lot of people don't have two controllers (I have three, one for each system I have bought due to RROD). I do agree it's easier, but it's even easier if that second controller was an actual person, too. I got the spotlight a receiver achievement on my own but needed a friend's help on the player lock one.

This is a really good guide, so don't get me wrong here. But a statement for former NCAA Football gamers, although you probably have figured this out already, you can do most of these single game cheevos with as low as 1 or 2 quarters. If you want to be safe then follow the guide and do 5-7.

Set up a game in Exhibition. Choose a team you feel comfortable using and set the Offense to Spread. Set the difficulty to Freshman. I did 1 minute quarters on this one. Just make sure you get the ball first if you do so. Get down in the red zone. Run a play but do not score. Then hold down :ybut: to go into no huddle. When the quarterback lines up, press X and select an audible. Keep trying until you score a touchdown on the audible. Do this once again in the same game. The achievement will unlock at the end of the game.

Nice guide . Thanks alot!

I am having problems getting the quoted achievement above. I No huddled all down the field and scored on No huddled audibled play. I done this 4-5 times a game in two different games. Is there something I am not doing right? Any help would be much appreciated.

Very easy 1k. I beat in about 15-20 hours, including time just sitting there while simming. Just follow the guide and this thread. A lot of useful tips. My tips:

1. For the 3 leaderboard achievements, edit Terrelle Pryor (Ohio St. QB) to all 99's and use him as your player. Then simply sim all 4 seasons. I got the NCAA all-time in the 4th season. I won the heisman all 4 years!

2. An easy way to get about 20 achievements. Start a dynasty with Alabama. You can try for the best recruiting class (its not hard to get). Make sure that you have BOTH difficulties set to freshman. Then, set the quarter length to 3 or 4 minutes. Make sure you play each game and win by 21 or more points. You can also do 3 season ones (QB with 65%+ comp percentage, RB with 6+ yards per carry, 20 rushing and 20 passing td's with one player) very easily. Remember that there is a minimum of 100 attempts for the first two. I focused on these 3 for the first games and once i got them, I just racked up td's and yards with Engram (Alabama QB). He should win the heisman. Also, do the playbook specific achievements (Like score 35+ points while using the option offense) while playing in this dynasty. Saves you from having to play more games. You should also be able to get don't call it a comeback, which is convincing a player of 95 or higher to stay.

3. For the set up shop in the big 3, select Vanderbilt and target all 1 star prospects in California. Sim the season and reorder the draft board by interest every 4 weeks.

4. For the red zone defensive one and lock it up, I used 2 controllers. Very easy to do. Just select a linebacker with your profile that is in MAN COVERAGE on the tight end and throw it in the flats.

5. For winning all the bowl games (i recommend doing this after you win the national championship on the alabama dynasty) select play game and pick the better of the 2 teams. Then sim to the 3rd quarter. Either you will be winning, losing or tied. I recommend simming by posession until there is about 2 minutes left then making your decision what team you need to pick. I can personally confirm this works. Be aware, very time consuming. Took me about an hour and a half.

Anyways, I thought it was a pretty easy 1k. I basically beat it in 2 days. Now I can finally enjoy the game! Don't hesitate to pm me, reply to the thread, or send me a fr on live. I'd be happy to help. Good luck!

If you have 2 controllers, you can get many easy achievements such as pistol, air raid, run and shoot, spread no huddle, draw me a touchdown, hero, etc. Just put the 2nd controller (non-achievement controller) on the team your playing. Have that 2nd controller do field goal block for passing plays and goaline run commit left while you rund right for run plays. I suggest you go to this youtube channel ( channel- http://www.youtube.com/user/360gamestrategies22 ) to see it in action and if your not understanding me fully. Hope this helps!

For the program changer achievement, I made a 'powerhouse' teambuilder school with A+ on everything and made it have a 2 star prestige. Import it in place of Vanderbilt in dynasty so you can also use the SEC's conference prestige as a selling point. To be safe I targeted 4 5-star recruits. Just spend 60 mins a peice on them a week and downplay EVERYTHING. I ended up with all 4 by the end of the season, but after the first hard-commit, "bloop" achievement unlocked!

For Treasure Hunter, I simmed up to bowl week and I wrote down all the bowl games with the all the teams playing in them and made 11 more coaches and saved. I assigned the coaches to teams that were matched up together in a bowl game, such as the Chick-fil-A bowl or the Orange bowl. I simmed the 6 matches between the 12 teams and received 6 trophies. Reload the save and deleted the one coach that was assigned to a team already created one new coach and assigned them to another 12 teams. This process didn't take longer than 40 mins

1. Goto bowl season
2. Select a team
3. Supersim to last play
4. Change Sides to winning team (if the team you picked is losing/about to lose)
5. Repeat

You don't have to play a down, unless you supersim to the last play and its tied with one team about to kick a field goal or something. 1 minute quarters makes simming faster.

A very easy way to get lock it up is Put the game on Heisman. Play as Alabama. Choose a team with an overall of a D rating. Lock in on the any of the CB. Choose a play with all Curls. Before you snap the Ball send all of the RB's TE's and WR's on streaks EXCEPT one of the Receivers. Make sure the receiver your guarding is still running a curl route. Lock in on one of your CB's. lob the ball with your other controller for the other team and move your receiver out of the way and the CPU will take control of the CB you locked out and pick it off almost every time. You don't even have to take control of him for the return just move all of the defenders out of the way and the CPU will take it to the house.

Although its easy to get---if anyone is having trouble getting the #1 draft class just sim an entire season with any team, when you get to the offseason, create a coach. sim all weeks up to signing day, on signing day assign your new coach to the #1 team, delete your original coach sim to the next season and the achievement will unlock.

This is actually much easier than I thought it would be. Set up an Exhibition match on Freshman difficulty with as much time as you want. Go into House Rules > Custom AI and set the User Interceptions and Pass Coverage to 100. Then when you play defense, click in the LS to lock onto a player. Keep doing this until the quarterback throws in your direction and return it for a touchdown. It's much easier with the adjusted AI sliders. I used middle linebacker to get it.


Anyone have any tips for this ach??? Only one I have left to get!!!!!!!!!
