By setting the overall game difficulty to "Heisman" then starting a dynasty and switching the dynasty difficulty to "Junior Varsity", you can easily defeat opponents and complete challenge tasks. However, you will be rewarded as though you are playing under the "Heisman" setting, effectively giving four times the points for pennant purchases.
Choose your fastest lineman and make him the number one DT. Use the 4-3 defense, take control of the DT, and line him up to the outside shoulder of the weak side DE (away from the TE or FB). The lineman will rush into the backfield untouched at least 80 percent of the time. Also when on defense, choose the 4-4 formation and select the Fire Green" play. Before the ball is snapped, shift your LBs to the outside of the formation and take control of the OLB that has no TE or RB aligned on his side of the formation. If the offense is in a formation with no TEs or RBs, then take control of the faster of the two OLBs and rush the QB for a quick sack.
On the higher difficulty settings such as All-American and Heisman, the CPU seems to shift directly where you are going to run the ball. To avoid this problem have two of your favorite run plays in your audibles. If you call one of those two plays in the audibles and the CPU overshifts directly to where you are running the ball, simply audible to the same running play you had called. The CPU should switch its line and linebackers shifts. If it does not, simply audible to the same run play again. Eventually you should be able to get the CPU to overshift to the wrong side of the line and get a huge run. Note: This may take a lot of play clock to accomplish.
Set a punt return as one of your defensive audibles. If you have not changed the default audibles, then R + X should be return middle. Before your opponent punts, choose all out block. If your opponent does not switch to tight punt, then move the man furthest to the left or right (usually a FS) over once by pressing Left or Right. Then, switch to the man directly inside of the furthest man. The outside man should take the blocker and leave a free path to the punter. If your opponent does switch, simply audible to your return. The tight punt will cause the "gunners" on the outside to stay and block no one, leaving room for at least a fifteen yard return, and if you can make good cuts, a potential touchdown.
On offense, choose any pass play. If you have good protection on the line, press Y so that the quarterback will run. Run to left of the play on the outside then start running toward the touchdown. The wide receiver blockers stay with the wide receivers; all you need to worry about is the line. You can outrun them easily. This works about 90% of the time.
Once the celebration starts, if you feel that you are about to receive a penalty, pause game play. You will not receive the 15 yard penalty. This is useful after touchdown celebrations, so your extra point is not from about 20 yards out.
The game randomly has a student act up and requires discipline. After each game, save your dynasty. Then, select the next game but make sure you have it checked as if you wish to play it, even if you are going to simulate it. If the discipline window appears, exit out and reload your dynasty. Go to that game again. Make sure you have the game checked to play so that the controller selection screen appears or else the CPU will take care of discipline, which is bad if you did not put any points into it. Then, exit out and simulate when the game is clear. With this, you can make any cupcake team a contender in no time.
