BCS Conference Invite

When do you actually get invited? Off-season, pre-season, or during the season?

I've done everything the achievement guide said, but I still haven't gotten invited. I've been modifying my schedule to include Ohio State, Michigan, and Wisconsin every year.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

End of season, like Bob said usually after an undefeated season and a National Championship with a minumum of 5* level. Of course, it's been different for everyone, bu that's when I got mine.

I decided to do it over again using Notre Dame since their an Independent and they are already a 6-star team. I got invited to the MAC Conference the first year which I accepted. Now I'm going to play a couple more years hoping I'll get invited into the Big 10 Conference. I'll post the results once I'm finished.

Tip: If you set everyone on the roster to 99 for ND, you can sim 4 years straight and be undefeated each year (including the National Championship). I know this is cheap, but I've already played the Dynasty a zillion times trying to get this achievement and have been unsuccessful.

Edit: OMFG!! I finally got it. I played over 7 seasons using Notre Dame. You need to be undefeated every year and win the National Championship. I simming all games the entire 7 years. This is the most retarded achievement I've ever encountered and I'm so relieved that I finally got it.

It depends on the length of the time you have been in the conference you are in. If you get invited into the MAC you aren't going to get into a BCS conference the very next year...you have to dominate the competition for a few years and prove that you are ready to take on a BCS caliber schedule. It isn't retarded at all actually...it is a rare occurrence in NCAA and if you have a dominant team then you get rewarded. Don't bitch that you had to boost to get an achievement and it " took too long"...god damn

It's not glitched....just a pain in the ass. Go through with ND and do all the in seasons recruiting then sim til you win every game. I only signed 6 during the season and was in 10th but had a huge first week of the off-season and signed 8 ppl, 7 of which were 5-star recruits. Then just recruit the rest of the off-season and you'll get it.

Oh and i got my conference invite after 9 years of 14-0 ball. Won conference and coach of the year every time and 3 NC's. Anyone else who is stuck just keep with it...it'll come to you

Bcs Conference Invite

If anyone else is having trouble with this achievement. Use Hawaii. After your 2nd undefeated season, you should get it.

You can get this one at the end of the first season as found by another forum member (sorry don't recall the post or name offhand...but I don't take credit) and I can confirm that it works.

Pick TCU in the mountain west conference. Sim through there season. Just make sure its a winning season and you win your bowl game.

After the bowl game you will get invited to join the big 12 and presto achievement unlocked after only 1 season. I tried this out three times and each time was the same result.

Michigan State is in the Big 10. That's a BCS conference. You won't be able to use them. Try a team like Notre Dame or Hawaii, I've heard work the best.

does this post look familiar?

"It depends on the length of the time you have been in the conference you are in.

hahahaha the very next day you were bitching about the same thing you said not to bitch about !! HAHAHAHAHA

Yeah i can confirm this...I tried for 7 simmed years with notre dame going undefeated as national champs and no luck. I figured what the hell i edited a few players on tcu and simulated the first season going 9-3. i won my bowl game and it was instant invite to the big 12...achievement unlocked. this way was much easier than the notre dame way.

I tried the TCU trick and it didn't work on the first season (where I went 13-0 by simming), but it did work after the second season. I also unlocked the Heisman Trophy and Developed a New Pipeline State when going from season one to two.

So if you're Notre Dame, would it be recommended to take the MAC jump before going to a BCS conference, because I'm in my 2nd season, and declined a MAC invite after year one.

I played 4 years with Western Michigan. 2 of those years went 14-0, with a BCS bowl invite, and won. After the 4th year I was asked to join the Big 10, and replace Purdue in the conference. You really have to dominate the smaller conference your in, and beat up some bigger schools. One of the easier achievements, IF you actually play the dynasty years through.

I'm working on this one right now as Western Michigan. I went undefeated my first year and now have to play Florida in the Sugar Bowl. I figure that with this win I'll boost myself to high ranks in the next season and hopefully be able to go undefeated again and win the Natn'l Champ. game and get closer to getting to 6 stars and that conference invite.

This worked for me after the 2nd season, after going undefeated with TCU both seasons and winning the BCS Conference both seasons. Thanks.

TCU worked after the 2nd year for me. I would start over on the sim if it hadn't worked by the 4th year. I think it depends on how badly other teams are doing in the BCS conferences since you replace one of them.

got it

I tried TCU for three years. Undefeated each year, national champs the last (i heard you didn't HAVE to win it), and conf. champs each year. Even with my great QB returning each year, no dice.

I decided to start a new season with Notre Dame. I got rid of all of my random games, and filled them with Big Ten games. I left some good teams in there that aren't in the Big Ten to be high in the standings. Didn't sim any game except for the national championship, which I won about 4 out of 5 against Mizzou. I saw 4 out of 5 because after the game, and after the coaching offers, I expected a conference invite, but instead it said advance to offseason. I retried it over and over, but nothing. So i decided to just sim it a year (that i read on this list) After I read the thread, I went back on, simmed the national championship (won it) and ADVANCED to offseason. That is were I got the invite to knock Iowa or Purdue outta the Big Ten.


THE CONFERENCE INVITE SHOULD BE AT THE BEGINNING OF THE OFFSEASON AFTER YOU ADVANCE TO OFFSEASON.

I hope this helps out people, because this has been taking up a LOT of my time, and I am relieved to have it done.
