A collegiate football player becomes the campus laughing-stock when he scores the winning touchdown--for the wrong team. The bungler's life doesn't get much better when a gangster, the only one who is happy about the player's mistake because it earned him a bundle, hires him and hands him a fortune worth over $100,000 to transport from California to Chicago. While at the airport the player gets distracted by a lovely reporter and misses his flight. He then rents a private plane. The fun really begins after he accidentally fumbles the cash and it plummets into the midst of a prison yard. Now he must somehow retrieve every penny lest he lose more than another game.
