Connie Casey, a high-spirited, headline-chasing heiress, keeps her manufacturing-tycoon father busy worrying about her. Deported from Europe for her antics, Connie decides to enroll in her father's alma mater, Pottawatomie College, in Stop Gap, New Mexico, in order to be near her latest heart throb, British playwright Beverly Waverly. In desperation, Mr. Casey hires Clint Kelly, Jojo Jordan, Manuelito and Al Terwilliger, the pride of the Ivy League college football teams, to act as Connie's bodyguards. After signing an "anti-romantic" clause in their contracts, the boys arrive at Pottawatomie to discover the worst football team in the West. Unable to resist the game, Manuelito joins the team, soon followed by Clint, Jojo and Al. After a short time, the Pottawatomie team begins to wipe up the field with their opponents and headlines of the team's success reach the East. Meanwhile, Clint begins to fall in love with Connie and decides that he must resign from his contract with Mr. Casey. Soon after, Connie learns the terms of Clint's business arrangement with her father and angrily insists that her bodyguards leave town before the day of the big game. Learning of their players' plans, the townfolk pursue the boys, who are caught by Beverly and returned just in time for the game. Encouraged by Connie's declaration of love, Clint leads the team to victory and wins the girl's heart.
