This guide will apply to all four similar achievements; where you have to level up to 10 overall, in skill, strat and sportsmanship.

The first thing I suggest doing is starting a dynasty season and simming to the first bowl week. Then choose the NCAA schedule and start playing the bowl games while you work for these achievements, once you get them you'll be well on your way to winning all the bowl games or the fill the trophy case achievement.

Next step is to set your opposing A.I. to freshman and quarters to at least 3mins so the Season Showdown system doesn't say you didn't play long enough and you lose what you've earned. Now adjust sliders so your defense has 100% everything and adjust the opposing A.I. sliders down so that it's all around 25, this will allow your defense to make the big plays you need for strat point as well as allow you to pace the game as you feel to help with the sportsmanship points.

Skill Points.

Just play normally, try and pass for TD's that's worth 3 points. Sacking the QB on defense is worth 8 points. Intercepting the ball yourself is worth 15, forcing a fumble is 10 and swatting a ball is 5. Obviously you're more liking to earn your points on defense, which is all good because that's what you'll be playing most of the time.

Strategy Points.

Now set your defensive scheme to 'Aggressive', you will now get points for everything you D does, but they will be applied as 'strategy' points thanks to your good coaching skills. Fumbles are worth 10, ints are worth 15 and when you correctly guess the play the d is running you'll be awarded with 5 for jumping the snap. This is why you've adjusted the sliders, you'll get lots of interceptions, especially towards the end of the game when the opposing QB has lost composure and your forcing him to throw because you're winning, and it's late in the game.

Sportsmanship Points.

Go up early and don't worry if you don't get a lot during the course of the game, the 4th quarter is sportsmanship's time to shine. Whenever you get the chance, punt or kick for a field goal on 4th, it will award you with 10 sportsmanship points. Warning though, if you're up big and you're still throwing deep late in the 4th you can lose 50 or 100 points on each of those plays, so stay away. Once you get to the 4th quarter, turn chew clock on and just QB kneel every play and punt on 4th, now you get 30-40 sportsmanship points a drive and then your back on D for more skill and strategy points. Keep going until you finish the game. Make sure your connected so you get the points sent to the EA servers.

Finally it seems that you will reach an overall level of 10 way before the other 3. Using this method shouldn't take you more than 10-15 games, maybe less maybe a little more depends on how long your quarters are and how well you play.

also you can tweak offsides off and just sack the QB all the time, but it gets tiresome and game after game you might not want to do it, but to each his own.

Goodluck!
