In the interest of trying to have the easiest solution possible show up on TrueAchievements, I got this achievement the very first play I tried it by using the following method:

Use two controllers. User (you) is Controller 1 and chooses Alabama.

Controller 2 is San Jose State.

You can go in an adjust sliders on players if you wish. I did for the top 2 Alabama CB's - but I didn't touch any of the players on San Jose State.

I did have all the User sliders set to 100 and all the CPU sliders set to 0 - but I'm not sure if that means anything when you are using the two controller method.

Anyhow, start an exhibition game between Alabama and San Jose State. Make sure to kickoff to San Jose State. I tried to make sure the ball ended up between the 5 and 10 yard line, and downed it there.

At this point I turned off the play clock (trust me - you want to do this), and I adjusted the "Player Min Speed" to 0 through the "House Rules" menu under the "Settings" option.

For Alabama choose the defense "MAN", then "MAN COVERAGE", find the play named "Double Outside" (it's # 24 of 39). Pick this defense.

For San Jose State, choose "Pass", "Standard Pass" and pick the play "Y Shallow Cross" (#2 of 62).

Once everything is set up, have Controller 1 (controlling Alabama's Defense) press the "B" button and cycle through until you are controlling Player #21 (the CB lining up across from the WR labeled "B" (he should be Player #9) on the offense - he should be on the far right hand side of your screen). Now press the Right Stick so that he is "locked" on (a little padlock symbol should appear under the Alabama CB).

Now have Controller 2 (San Jose State) hike the ball, let the QB complete his drop and then TAP B (don't hold it down ) so that the QB LOBS the ball to the receiver on that side.

Now at this point some people recommend that you quickly pick up Controller 1, move the CB in front of the receiver, and intercept the ball using the "Y" button. I didn't do that. I just let the computer control the CB. He easily intercepted the ball, and I picked up Controller 1 and angled my way into the end zone. The achievement popped as soon as I scored.

There is also the recommendation out there that instead of controlling the CB after the interception, you stay with Controller 2 and continually press B (which will choose the San Jose player closest to your CB) and move them out of the CB's way on his way to the end zone. I didn't find that necessary, but it's an option if you aren't having immediate success.

Good luck.

[[Hat-tip to cowboy bob over at xbox360a for the implementation.]]

(As a caveat I should mention that I never tried the "RTG CB" method. I tried the "NCAA Football 10" method (using Alabama instead of Florida) and I tried the "NCAA Football 9" method (adjusting sliders and playing against Hawai'i) - but all I did was waste a lot of time. I got the achievement on the very first play after the kickoff using this method. So I'm assuming you should have as easy a time with it.)
