    I started with the highest rated RE from the current players, Von Miller if you have the rosters, he plays for the Texas A&M Aggies I believe. Turn off offsides in the house rules and every time you play a game just stand next to the QB and sack him every play. You should get the achievement within 3 games.

    DJP519It took me either 4 or 5 games, but this method definitely works like a charm.

    DJP519FYI, if you continue the season, you should win the Heisman, too. I simulated half my games, used this method the other half, and easily won the Heisman, had almost all the first place votes. Thanks!

    Edit: If you want the achievement super fast, use RG BzN's guide. However, if you want to actually play the mode, here's how the achievement works.

    In Road to Glory mode, go to Stats & Records>Leaderboards>Offline Leaderboards>NCAA. Here you will see the Legend Rank score that you need to beat for your position.

    As a QB, I needed to beat a Legend Rank score of 2100. My achievement unlocked at the end of the ACC Conference Championship game in season 2 when my Legend Rank score reached 2135.

    If you play as QB, the best way to attain the achievement is to always audible to a pass play. Throw the ball deep as much as possible. Score as many TD's and get as many wins as you can. End of the year awards and bowl wins help increase your score also. You should easily hit the mark necessary by the end of the second season, if not early in the third season.

    Short and simple solution, make a QB, max his stats, and put him on a powerhouse team like Alabama. Make sure he is a starter in the depth chart. Select him in Road to Glory and simulate everything and by the end of the 3rd season you will have all 3 all-time leaderboard achievements. You should need just over 2100 legend score to get this. After 3 seasons I won every game including SEC and BCS, won 2 heismans, and had a total of 2480 legend score.

    I believe this is the easiest solution because it requires no playing or really messing with the AI or gameplay and you can get the achievement easily while just simulating. I also got the heisman trophy and QB completion % trophy along the way along with a bunch of awards that also help raise your legend score.

    Good luck and please leave positive if this helped you.

    Mortis InvictusGood guide, especially because I couldn't seem to make the other methods work (namely, turning off offsides. There's only an option for turning off npc penalties, but the game still called them on me).

    At any rate, this method worked like a charm. I created a qb with maxed ratings, simmed through 4 undefeated seasons with Bama on a low difficulty, won the Heisman twice, and got all three leaderboard achievements in perhaps 30 minutes. +1.
