In this now-campy drama, a patriotic state college football team takes on a subversive radical group determined to undermine American Values with Communist Propaganda. The prime target of the radicals is Larry Davis, the conservative star quarterback. To get him, they utilize a sly and sensual co-ed who seduces Larry from his true-blue gal and leads him into the fast lane. Soon, his playing ability is diminished. Fortunately, he recognizes the error of his ways and abandons his perverted, hedonistic lifestyle just in time to make it back to the playing field where during the final three minutes of the very last game, he carries the ball to victory. As he wins the game, an undercover Government agent drops his disguise as a college student and captures the radicals.
