Due to NCAA sanctions, the Texas State University Fightin' Armadillos must form a football team from their actual student body, with no scholarships to help, to play their football schedule. With fewer players than most teams, the makeshift team must overcome obstacles that the best teams in the country couldn't deal with. Using a thirty-four-year-old quarterback, a female placekicker, and a gang of misfits, Ed "Straight Arrow" Genero must take his team to play the number one Texas Colts. Written by
Lucy Draper (Kathy Ireland) plays the first female placekicker on the Armadillos team, in 1991. Since the film was released, several women have played college football. While most female college football players have either been placekickers or holders for placekickers, in 2014 Shelby Osborne became a defensive back for Campbellsville University in Kentucky.

In the final play of the final game, there is a shot of Blake scrambling. At the end of that clip, before cutting back to Banks (88), it shows Manumana (50) just steps away from blocking out Flat top(55). Then Blake is in the clear and Flat top is running from a distance. See more »

This is an absolutely hilarious movie that I would recommend to
anyone. True, it has the same basic plot as every other sports movie that has come out in the last 20 years (group of ragtags come together to form a team to defeat a bigger, more evil team, etc.), but there such high energy in all the performances, and the dialogue is so brimming with hilarity that it doesn't matter. How many "comedies" have come out recently that contain only a few jokes, each of them surrounded by tons of boring and meaningless plot development that don't add up to anything. For anyone tired of this, I highly urge you to take a look at this highly underrated film filled with dialogue that is refreshingly funny all the way through. Movies like this are what great comedy is all about.
