Start a Play Now game, and choose a team with a strong running game (I chose Texas) and pick a weak defensive team for the CPU. Set the difficulty to "Freshman" and play 10 - 15 minute quarters instead of the default 5 minutes.

Obviously you'll want to run the ball as much as possible on offense, but remember to throw short passes once in a while to keep the defense from sitting on the run and stuffing your runner for little or no gain.

If your running back is fast, you can pick up big yards by calling pitches and tosses to the outside; once the back turns the corner use lots of jukes, stiff-arms, and spin moves to evade defenders. Hold down the right trigger to get a bit of a burst too.

When your running back doesn't have the ball, don't try and score: when you're returning kicks and punts, just run out bounds as soon as you get the ball; same goes for turnovers. When you complete a pass, have the receiver run out of bounds after getting the first down. If you get an interception on defense, run the ball back to around your 15 yard line to keep the field as "long" as possible for your runner. Remember, you don't have to win the game to get the achievement, although if you're playing on Freshman you probably will.

Good clock management will help you get this achievement: have any offensive player who isn't your star runner go out of bounds when they get the ball to stop the clock. If it's late in the game and you're really close to the achievement, don't be afraid to call timeouts to preserve time.

Doing all this, you should get the achievement without a lot of trouble (I got it by playing eight-minute quarters, so if you choose 10 - 15 minute quarters you'll have an even easier time) and if you haven't gotten them yet, you'll pick up the achievements for 100 rushing yards, 200 rushing yards and probably the ones for a 30-yard run and a 60-yard run along the way.
