Flash Foster is the strapping young running back at "Midwestern University." He's much in demand from the pros and is the main (only) reason that Midwestern is headed to the Rose Bowl. This, of course, irritates the gamblers who stand to make good money betting against Northwestern if only Flash were gone. So the gamblers kidnap Flash's girlfriend Connie. This somewhat peeves Flash, so with the help of his puny frat boy pal Shorty he storms the gamblers' cottage, far out in the country, and frees Connie. He then dashes back to the big game and wins it for dear old Midwestern U., running for touchdowns and kicking in the game-winning free kick.
