Achievement Guide and Road Map

NCAA Football 12 Achievement Guide and Roadmap


COPYRIGHT/RIGHTS OF USE:
This guide may not be used without written permission by either the author or website admins. This guide has been put together for x360a and should not be used without permission.

Overview:

-Estimated achievement difficulty: 4/10
-Offline: 37 (980)
-Online: 2 (20)
-Approximate amount of time to 1000: 8-12 Hours
-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 5 (4 Dynasty, 1 Road to Glory)
-Number of missable achievements: None
-Do cheat codes disable achievements? N/A
-Does difficulty affect achievements? No
-Glitchy achievements: None
-Unobtainable achievements: None (NOTE: it is an EA game so the online could be shut down)
-Extra equipment needed? No, but 2nd controllers is recommended

Breakdown
If you have played an NCAA game before, then you will be familiar with most of the achievements this year. The game is pretty simple with only two or three challenging achievements and a few time consuming.

Step 1 Dynasty Mode
First start off by joining an online dynasty and make a comment to earn the My Two Cents achievement. Next start a offline dynasty and use the conference editor to get the following achievements:
On Second Thought
My Conference is Super
One of the Boys
After earning one of these start the dynasty in which if you follow this guide, you will get the following achievements:
Living Legend
Dual Threat Coach
Independence Day
Point Some Fingers
Best Class Ever
Dream Job
Hometown Hero
You will also get either the Legends of Legends or Head of the Pac achievement. After finishing your first season, continue to the off-season and get the Changing the Landscape achievement. Now just continue the dynasty and keeping the job security up until you contract expires and get Let's Do It Again achievement.

Now start a new dynasty to get either the Cool Off The Hot Seat or the other conference championship achievement.

Step 2 Road To Glory
Start a new Road to Glory mode and play through the High School season to get the following achievements:
Ironman Performance
Ultimate Ironman
Best In Class
High School Champs
Now play through the Road to Glory and you should get the following achievements:
Campus Legends
Conference King
Best Of All Time
Battle Tested
Earn My Trust

Step 3 Clean Up
By now you should have most of the achievements if not all. If you have not gotten 1000, just play a few games in quickplay to get the remaining achievements.

Note: Like previous NCAA titles, you can edit the User/CPU skills, penalties, and use two controllers to get the achievements. If you are having trouble, set the User skills to 100 and the CPU skills to 0 and turn off the penalties.

Also for achievements that you have to win a certain game (HS Championship, National Championship, Conference Championship), you actually have to play those games to get the achievement. DO NOT SIM THESE GAMES!


Take a Stab Downfield 15
Complete a pass for 50 or more yards in a Play Now, Dynasty, or Road to Glory game (excludes co-op).

Simply complete a pass for 50+ yard pass. If you want an easy way of doing this, simply use two controllers and have the ball around the 25 yard line on your side of the field on offense. Select a Hail Mary pass for the offense and field goal block for the defense. As soon as you hike the ball, pass to any receiver and take it for a touchdown.

1st Option For 6 10
Score a touchdown handing off to the fullback on a triple option play (excludes co-op).

Get the ball near the goal line and choose a triple option play. After you hike the ball, hold to hand the ball to the fullback and score.

Speed Reader 10
Score a touchdown on a QB Choice run play (excludes co-op).

The play isn't actually called a QB Choice. Many teams have the play (Oregon is the one I used. You can also use a different team with their playbook). Get it down around the goal line, select the QB Wrap play, and run it in for the touchdown.

Balanced Attack 15
Gain 200 rushing yards and 200 passing yards in the same game (excludes co-op and Road to Glory).

Simply pass and rush for 200 yards as a team in either quick play or dynasty. If you are having trouble, increase the time.

Lock and Load 15
With Player Lock on, return an interception for a TD (excludes co-op).

This is one of the hardest achievements for the game. You can use 2 controllers to make it a little easier. What I did was max out all of CB stats on a team. Then selected that team and a team with a weak defense and set the quarter length to 15 min. When the opposing team has the ball, get it down to somewhere around the 20. For the opposing team select one of the plays that has just one receiver running out then select a man coverage play for your team. Highlight the player covering that one receiver then select that player with player lock () and hold and select the receiver you are covering (for the In Your Crosshairs achievement), then used the second controller to pass in the direction until you intercepted the ball. Pick up your controller and run it back in for a touchdown.

Thanks to bLaKgRaVy for this tip

I picked a San Jose offensive pass play where there was only one receiver () on the left side. Then I picked an Oklahoma defensive play where the CB dropped back 10 yards (didn't stay in the flats). I hot routed the San Jose receiver () straight out, then took control of my CB. I moved him back around 10 yards and clicked to player lock. I also hit and to spotlight the receiver. I hiked the ball and waited about a half a second. Then I threw it to and my CB intercepted it since he was in the right area (In Your Crosshairs). Since their defense sucks, I had no problem running it back for a TD. Unlocked. It was a little awkward using two controllers at once, but it seemed almost easier than last year.
In Your Crosshairs 10
Spotlight a receiver and get an interception on him in a Play Now or Dynasty game (excludes co-op).

See Lock and Loaded

Unstoppable 15
Win a game by 35+ points on Heisman difficulty (excludes co-op).

Not as hard as it sounds if you use sliders and play as a top 10 team against a team like Army. You can also turn off penalties to make it easier.

Best Class Ever 15
Have the #1 ranked recruiting class in a season in single team Dynasty Mode.

See Dual Threat Coach

Point Some Fingers 20
In a single phone call, take 250 points away from one school by downplaying pitches.

During Dynasty mode, choose a six star school and add a two star or less recruit to your list. Spend the first two or three weeks finding out their interest. By this time, there should be a few two star schools trying to get the player. Select one of the players and use 60 minutes phone call. Select one of the school and downplay the school. If you choose a school with C and less ratings, you should have no problem getting it. I took over 500 points from a school during a phone call when I got the achievement.

High School Champ 15
Play and win the High School Championship Game in any state.

Unlike the previous games, Road to Glory begins with the start of you senior year in High School. Just try to go undefeated in the regular season to get a spot in the playoffs then win the HS Championship.

Best in Class 15
Finish High School as a 5 star prospect in Road to Glory.

See Ultimate Ironman

Taking the Snaps 15
Become a starter in Road to Glory Mode.

There are two ways to get this. The first is to select a school that you will be a starter to get the achievement automatically. The second is to start off as a second or third string and earn your spot by doing practices and earning coach's trust. If you do the second method you will also earn the Battle Tested achievement

Strike the Pose 15
Win the Heisman Memorial Trophy® in single team Dynasty Mode or Road to Glory Mode.

This achievement can only be earned in Dynasty or Road to Glory. I found it easier to unlock it in Dynasty mode as you have more control of the plays and control more then one player. Simply just pad players stats (example: If you are using a running back use run plays a lot and don't sub out the player) and the Heisman and the achievement will be yours.

Campus Legend 15
In Road to Glory Mode, earn a spot on your team's All-Time leaderboard.

See Best of All Time

Conference King 40
In Road to Glory Mode, earn a spot on your conference's All-Time leaderboard.

See Best of All Time

Best of All Time 90
In Road to Glory Mode, earn a spot on the NCAA All-Time leaderboard.

In the Road to Glory menu, go to the My Career Tab and select Offline Leaderboards at the bottom. This will show how many points needed to make each of the leaderboards. Select My Accomplishments of the same tab to see how to earn the points and how many points you have earned (Legend Score). Easiest way to do this is to max out the stats for a RE on Notre Dame, use that RE for your RTG, turn off offsides, and keep sacking the QB. I was able to get the Best of All Time achievement in 4 games using this method. (thanks to bLaKgRaVy for the tip).

Ironman Performance 20
Score an offensive and defensive touchdown in a Road To Glory high school game

When you are making your player for Road to Glory, you now have the option to give him a secondary position. Select one for offense and one for defense. I found it easier to get you player to a 5 star on defense because my player started to get more force fumbles once I had him at 5 stars.

Ultimate Ironman 40
Finish High School as a 5 star prospect in Road to Glory on both offense and defense.

Using the character you made for Ironman Performance, finish off the season while doing really good at both position. Achievement will unlock after the last high school game. You will also unlock the Best in Class achievement as well.

Battle Tested 20
Win a position battle in Road To Glory

When selecting a college team for RTG after the High School season, you will be shown what string you will play. For this achievement, select either 2nd or 3rd string position. Now work on earning points for coach’s trust in practice. Once you fill up the bar and go to the next week, you will be able to challenge for the next position. To win this you will have meet a certain score based on how you do each rep. Touchdown will give you almost 1000 points so go for those. Win that and you will earn the next position and the achievement.

Earn My Trust 25
Reach the max coach trust in Road to Glory

Coach trust is pretty much leveling up. Everytime you do something (big gains, yards gained, touchdowns) you earn points and start to fill up the bar. When you fill up the bar, you gain a new level. The number of levels is determined by which position you play. The easiest way to earn points is by doing good in practice. Just reach the last level to unlock the achievement. NOTE: You can only fill the bar once per week.

My Conference Is Super 10
Create a 16 team super conference in Dynasty

After creating a new dynasty, you will be able to edit your dynasty. Simply select Custom Conferences option, select a conference, and add 16 teams.

One Of The Big Boys 10
Edit the BCS tie-ins to grant a BCS tie-in to a non-AQ conference

Before actually starting a new dynasty, you will be able to edit your dynasty. Select the BCS Bowl Tie-Ins option, select an open slot, and choose a conference and select "Any" bowl.

On Second Thought 10
Edit a division name of a conference in Dynasty

Before actually starting a new dynasty, you will be able to edit your dynasty. Simply select Custom Conferences option, select a conference with two divisions, press , select one of the Division Name, and rename it.

Leaders Of Legends 20
Play and win the inaugural Big Ten Championship game in Dynasty

Start a new dynasty and select a team from the Big Ten (you can move your team into the conference). Make sure you win most of your conference to be number 1 in you division and get to the Big Ten Championship. Win this game to unlock the achievement.

An easy way of doing this is to take all the Big Ten teams out of the conference add in a top ten team for your team and fill the rest with one stars (until you have enough for two division) and sim the season. You should be undefeated (if not you will be in the Big Ten Championship game regardless). Play the Championship game and it will unlock.

Head Of The PAC 20
Play and win the inaugural PAC-12 Championship game in Dynasty

See Leaders of Legends but use the PAC-12 instead.

Independence Day 40
Play and win the National Championship game with BYU in the first year of Dynasty

First of all you can not change the conference of BYU for this achievement. Doing this normal would be hard and time consuming since Independents can not be added into the AQ. However there is an easy way to do this. Create the following custom schedule:
1. Oklahoma
2. Alabama
3. Oregon
4. LSU
5. Texas A&M
6. Mississippi State
7. TCU
8. Notre Dame
9. Open
10. Florida State
11. Open
12. Auburn
13. Stanford
14. FCS Team
Using this schedule will get you strength of schedule advantage and eliminate some of the top teams. Now turn all sliders in your favor, turn off offsides, and set quarters to one minute. Once you get up by 3 scores and to the half, supersim it and you should have no problem getting the win. I was ranked #1 by week 10 using this method. If you get to week 10 and are not number one, play a game as the teams above you and keep running the ball for safeties to make them lose.

NOTE: If for some reason the game won't let you select one of the teams, just select any ranked team

Hometown Hero 50
Lead your alma mater to a National Championship as a head coach in Dynasty (Coach Contracts on)

See Dual Threat Coach
Changing The Landscape 20
Edit a conference's members in a Dynasty off-season

After finishing a season in dynasty toward the end of the off-season, you will be given the option to edit conferences. Simply add a team to a conference to unlock the achievement.

Let's Do It Again 20
As a head coach in Dynasty, sign an extension to stay at the same school (Coach Contracts on)

Thanks to Vipermaster for this tip. The following schools have one year contracts: Air Force, Arkansas State, Cincinnati, Colorado State, Houston (Recommended), Idaho, Iowa State, Kent State, Kentucky, Louisville, Marshall, Memphis, Mississippi State, North Texas, SDSU, SJSU, Toledo, Wake Forest, Washington, Western Kentucky.

The reason for the recommendation (Houston) is because your can more than likely sim the season and get rehired because of the offensive firepower in an underpowered conference. I simmed it and went 14-0, ranked #6 in the BCS, won the liberty bowl, and my QB got the Heisman because its such a pass oriented offense.

Dream Job 35
Become the head coach of your alma mater in Dynasty (Coach Contracts on)

See Dual Threat Coach

Cool Off The Hot Seat 25
Escape the hot seat (less than 30% security) to keep your job for next Season (Coach Contracts on)

Start a new dynasty and choose a mediocre team. Schedule as many of the top ranked teams. Sim through to the end of the season and you should have a losing record and have less than 30% security. Play through the off season and you should be able to keep your job.

Thanks to Toy Story 3 for this method.

Start off by choosing Texas and become the head coach. Go to roster and edit everyone over 80 overall. Lower the first 5 options to 0 and then save. Continue that until all players over 80 overall change to 40 overall. Now go to your depth chart and make everyone that is now 40 overall a starting position. If you get to a position with no one that is 40 overall, just skip that position. It shouldn't matter if some positions have decent overall players. The positions that are most important to have starters at 40 overall are QB, HB, and WR. Now simulate to the start of the season. After that simulate to conference championship week. You most likely will be 0-12 at the end of the conference championship week. You will not qualify for any bowls, so just simulate to the end of the season. The achievement will unlock after the season ends.

Dual Threat Coach 160
Win the BCS Championship & have the #1 recruiting class in a single season as head coach in Dynasty

When starting a dynasty season, make your coaches alma mater the school that you are going to use and select that school to play as (example: If you want to use the Gators, select your alma mater and team for University of Florida). This will unlock Dream Job. Before you start up your dynasty, you can create recruits for the season. Simply create about 12 recruits (different positions) with maxed out stats from the same city your schools in (use a 6 star school as it will be easier to win recruits and get to the national championship). You can also create one recruit with low stats from your state to go for the Point Some Fingers achievement. During the season, make sure to call them and spend time talking to them and go undefeated to win the national championship. Most of the recruit should sign with you. If you can sign at least 10 five star recruits, you will be good. If you followed this guide, you will get Dual Threat Coach, Living Legend, Hometown Hero, and Best Class Ever achievements.

Living Legend 50
Reach a coach prestige of A+ with a created coach in Dynasty (Coach Contracts on)

See Dual Threat Coach

My Two Cents 10
In Online Dynasty, write a comment on a Dynasty Wire story

This is online achievement. However, you do not need an online pass to do this. When it asks you if you want to redeem/purchase an online pass, you are also given an option for a free 2 day trial. Select this then go to Online Dynasty and join a game that has a few people in it and is a few weeks in. Go to the Dynasty Wire and write a comment one of the stories.

A Legend Is Born 15
Defeat a rival using your backup QB. Minimum 15 pass attempts (excludes co-op)

Simply start a rival game (it will note it at the team select screen). Before the game starts, put in your backup quarterback and through at least 15 passes. Achievement will unlock at the end of the game.

Tire Fire Offense 30
Win the game without scoring an offensive touchdown and gaining less than 200 total yards.

Set the quarter length to one minute and play against a real low team with a team with excellent defense. For this achievement you can score with safety and field goals (it has been reported that defensive touchdown will not work so to be safe, just score FG and safeties). Play some good defense. Once you get your points and get the ball back simply try to kill the clock.

Take What You Want 10
Create a custom playbook

From the Main Menu, go to the Team Management tab and select Custom Playbooks. Select if you want to do offense or defense then select a team. Add a play or form and the achievement will unlock.

Check This Out 10
Upload a photo or video to EASports.com

Simply take a photo or video of a play in the game and save it (if you have started Road to Glory and played a game on it, you will already have photos and videos). At the main menu, go to the My NCAA Legacy tab and select the EA Sports Highlights. Select the mode you want to pull your photo/video from, select the game, select the photo/video and select if you want to do just that one or all of the highlights.

Happy 20th EA SPORTS! 20
Break off a 20 yard run to celebrate 20 years of EA SPORTS!

Simply make a 20 yard run. Maximize a running back's stats and play a team with a weak defense to make this easier.

Achievement guide and road map are complete. I will take any suggestions and alternate methods to add to the guide and give credit. Also if someone wants to make a better art work for the top I will replace the current one I have now.

An easier way to do the Pac-10 and Big Ten championships is to just sim to that week (or you can do it as part of your BYU dynasty). Now make a backup save so that you will be able to re-load as necessary.

Look who is in the Pac-10 championship and add a coach for one of those teams. Switch any other human coaches over to CPU. Play the Pac-10 championship and win with the team you chose (super sim is OK) and the achievement will pop. Now add a coach for the Big 10 game, and switch your Pac-10 coach to CPU. Again win the game.

Achievements will not pop if you have more than one human controlled coach, or if you just play the game from the schedule without adding a coach for the team.

The name of the play is actually Read Option. When selecting the play press B and then go to choose formation or w/e it is. Then slide over to Option. Most teams probably have it in their playbook but Penn State has it for sure.

Btw, it isn't a stupid question since its under a different play name then what the achievement says. Rather stupid on their part to do it that way imo.

Thanks man, that was it.. worked the first time...

Tip for "1st Option For 6 10"... Use Triple Play and HOLD A after snap to give it to the FB instead of the HB... Had some trouble with that one...

This is the method I used for the 30% trophy. Feel free to add this description to your guide.

Start off by choosing Texas and become the head coach. Go to roster and edit everyone over 80 overall. Lower the first 5 options to 0 and then save. Continue that until all players over 80 overall change to 40 overall. Now go to your depth chart and make everyone that is now 40 overall a starting position. If you get to a position with no one that is 40 overall, just skip that position. It shouldn't matter if some positions have decent overall players. The positions that are most important to have starters at 40 overall are QB, HB, and WR. Now simulate to the start of the season. After that simulate to conference championship week. You most likely will be 0-12 at the end of the conference championship week. You will not qualify for any bowls, so just simulate to the end of the season. The trophy will unlock after the season ends.


Edit: You said you can't change BYU conference and that is wrong. I moved BYU to independent and got the achievement. Also your dual threat coach description only explains half of the achievement.

Thanks, I will add that tip to the guide. I fixed the dual threat coach as well. Also BYU is already in the independent conference. I read that you can not change BYU conference for the achievement but I will try it tonight and see if it works.

Tip for "1st Option For 6 10"... Use Triple Play and HOLD A after snap to give it to the FB instead of the HB... Had some trouble with that one...
Meant to put A instead of LT. Thanks for the heads up.

For the Balanced Attack achievement you can take a top team(I used Penn State) and play against FCS Midwest. Then you can just Supersim for the achievement.

You can use this in your guide if you like. I can confirm it unlocks with SuperSim.

Also, if you play on the Heisman difficulty, you'll most likely get the Unstoppable achievement too. Just supersim with 15 minute quarters and you should get both achievements in one game.

Start a new dynasty and choose a mediocre team. Schedule as many of the top ranked teams. Sim through to the end of the season and you should have a losing record and have less than 30% security. Play through the off season and you should be able to keep your job.

Thanks to Toy Story 3 for this method.

Start off by choosing Texas and become the head coach. Go to roster and edit everyone over 80 overall. Lower the first 5 options to 0 and then save. Continue that until all players over 80 overall change to 40 overall. Now go to your depth chart and make everyone that is now 40 overall a starting position. If you get to a position with no one that is 40 overall, just skip that position. It shouldn't matter if some positions have decent overall players. The positions that are most important to have starters at 40 overall are QB, HB, and WR. Now simulate to the start of the season. After that simulate to conference championship week. You most likely will be 0-12 at the end of the conference championship week. You will not qualify for any bowls, so just simulate to the end of the season. The trophy will unlock after the season ends.
First, you might want to change "trophy" to "achievement".

Also, I found that by editing only all the QB's, HB's and WR's to 0 made this work as well. No need to edit all players that are over 80. I believe there are 4 QB's, 4 HB's and 8 WR's on Texas. I did that and went 0-12. It unlocked for me no problem.

Play dynasty mode while passing as many job task and keeping a good job security rating. When your contract is getting ready to end, you will be offered an extension. Accept it for the achievement.
Just to clarify, you might want to mention that, depending on the contract, it might take multiple dynasty seasons to unlock this. I chose Oklahoma and signed a 3 year contract, so it unlocked for me after the 3rd season of dynasty. It varies with each team. Some are just 1 year contracts, some are longer.

From your solution, it sounds like that the achievement could unlock after the first season, and that may be true if you coach a team with a 1 year contract. But it's not true with all teams.

Get the ball near the goal line and choose a triple option play. After you hike the ball, press to hand the ball to the fullback and score.
I think you have to HOLD the button, not press it, to hand if off to the fullback.

EDIT - You do have to hold the button. It says so in the "Power Tips" when a game is loading up.

The play isn't actually called a QB Choice. Many teams have the play (Oregon is the one I used. You can also use a different team with their playbook). Get it down around the goal line, select the QB Wrap play, and run it in for the touchdown.
As stated in another post above, use the Read Choice play. Also, you don't have to run the QB in for the touchdown. If you choose that play, you can hold to hand it off to the HB and run it on. It will still unlock. It says a "QB Choice run play", not "score with a QB".

During Dynasty mode, choose a six star school and add a two star or less recruit to your list. Spend the first two or three weeks finding out their interest. By this time, there should be a few two star schools trying to get the player. Select one of the players and use 60 minutes phone call. Select one of the school and downplay the school. If you choose a school with C and less ratings, you should have no problem getting it. I took over 500 points from a school during a phone call when I got the achievement.
This is how I unlocked it. This also worked for me in NCAA 11. It worked great, and I didn't wait for the second or third week. It's pretty much what you wrote, but I did it in Week 1 and I searched for and added 2-star recruits from my home state. It helps a lot if they are from your state.

Set recruiting to Freshman. Go into recruiting (either in Preseason or Week 1) with a good team (one in the top 5), and find a 2- or 3-star prospect that has a very bad school as the one you will be competing against. It helps greatly if the prospect if from your home state. Add him to your recruiting board. Choose to call for 6 topics/60 minutes. 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 300 points on 6 topics. The achievement unlocks after you press to continue. Remember, make sure all topics are compared against just one school.

Start a new dynasty and select a team from the Big Ten (you can move your team into the conference). Make sure you win most of your conference to be number 1 in you division and get to the Big Ten Championship. Win this game to unlock the achievement.

An easy way of doing this is to take all the Big Ten teams out of the conference add in a top ten team for your team and fill the rest with one stars (until you have enough for two division) and sim it. Then sim it to the conference championship. You should be undefeated (if not you will be in the Big Ten Championship game regardless). Play this game and it will unlock.
You don't have to put a Top 10 team into the conference. For the Big 10, just use Ohio State (I think they are #4). Then sub out all the other teams for real bad ones like you said. Same for the PAC-12 achievement, just use Stanford. They are #5 I believe. You can pad each team's stats to 99, but I don't think it's necessary if you are playing 1- or 2-star teams.

Plus also, I think it nullifies the achievement if you move a team and use one from another conference. I know it does for the BYU achievement (early solutions stated to move BYU into the PAC-12). Best bet is just to use Stanford and Ohio State.

Well, in EA's defense (I can't believe I actually typed that), it doesn't say in the description that the "QB Choice run play" is an actual play. You have you use a play where the QB chooses to either hand it off or run it in himself. The Read Option (or really any other Option play) does that.

It's not a stupid question by any means, you just interpreted the description wrong thinking it was an actual play. I've done that many times myself (like with earlier NCAA titles where the description said "single team dynasty" but I used a multiple team dynasty).

It's not. I had not activated my Online Pass yet when I got this achievement. You only have to be connected to the EA servers.

The only true online achievement is My Two Cents. You need to have either activated your online pass or have used the 2-day free trial.

That is a good question. I would think, since you are not playing "online", you are just connected to the servers, that you wouldn't need Xbox Live Gold for this achievement. If someone doesn't do it before me (I'm getting ready for bed), I'll test it out tomorrow with one of my silver accounts.

I think the answer should be posted in the guide either way, too.

For some reason I reached all the way to Team Legend and never got the trophy for it.

Did I do something wrong.

Don't think you can do the 200 passing + 200 rushing in Dynasty. I did it with UConn several times and nothing popped. Possible glitch?
