A spin-off of the popular two-reel comedy series The Collegians, this early talkie once again featured George J. Lewis and Eddie Phillips as rivals for the affection of Dorothy Gulliver, the prettiest co-ed of imaginary Calford College, an institution of higher learning where academics take a decided back seat to romance and sporting activities. When "Flash" Thomas (Phillips), captain of the football team, finds Dorothy May (Gulliver) in the arms of his best buddy, Bob Wilson (Lewis), the dejected youth tries to forget his defeat by crashing a forbidden road house party. Bob tries valiantly to cover for his missing friend but Coach Jones (Hayden Stevenson) smells a rat and bans both from participating in the Big Game. Does Coach Jones come to regret his harsh decision and is Bob allowed back in to score the winning touchdown? Why, yes! Pert leading lady Dorothy Gulliver always retained fond memories of both the series and College Love, which she considered "the happiest time of my professional career."
