A college football player (Joe E. Brown) persuades a beautiful young woman (Joan Bennett) to individually flirt with an entire team of All-American football players, in order to entice them over to her college. But the players get angry and threaten to walk out when they find out that they have been fooled, and they get even madder when they discover that she has actually fallen in love with one of their own teammates (James Hall).
