College rivals Don Whitney and Joe Nolan clash in the Rose Bowl football game in Pasadena, California, with Don's team victorious. Joe decides to give up football and go to medical school instead, disappointing girlfriend Marian Rutherford, who was hoping Joe would become a rich and famous football hero instead.
Joe does change his mind, joining the Los Angeles Rams, which Joe's mother finds out by watching the Rams' game versus the Green Bay Packers on a television that Whitney has given to Joe's sister Ruth as a gift.
Deliberately injured by Don in a pro football game, Joe is pleased at first when Don is banned from playing in an all-star game. But with the game in progress, Joe has a change of heart and fakes an injury, whereupon Don is permitted to enter the game in his place and score the winning touchdown.
