They just might be the biggest bunch of losers that ever became winners.Aging ex-quarterback Paul Blake (Scott Bakula) enrolls in college in order to fullfill his adolescent high school dream of playing college football. Unfortunately, his new team has been put on notice for violating NCAA rules, and all the veterans have been kicked out.
Undaunted, Blake helps put together a team comprised of football-playing misfits and a female placekicker. In the midst of all this, he falls in love with one of the professors and must outwit the dean of the college, who is trying to cancel the football program.
