This satire of college football begins as big-time racketeer "Knucks" McGloin (Victor McLaglen) decides he can make a lot of money exploiting the popularity of collegiate home games. Knucks purchases Canarsie College, in which he "enrolls" some hoods and professional wrestlers, and, when

football season arrives, the boys stomp the legitimate opposition and run up ridiculously lopsided scores. With the stands full, the money comes pouring in, until a rival gang steals the idea and sets up its own bogus college. Eventually the two teams meet in a championship match, in which lead,

rather than the pigskin, flies. Pretty silly stuff, but good fun.
