Plot

Football coach Dan Curtis (Richard Arlen) has to decide how much he wants to win, when one of his players is injured, when he puts in him the game to play, while still recovering from a previous injury.

Veteran coach "Pop" Stewart (J. Farrell MacDonald) warns him that winning at all costs isn't worth it; and, he could lose a lot more than a game, including the respect of his old friend Babe (Jack Oakie); his girl, Mary (Peggy Shannon); and, his player, Paul (Charles Starrett) could lose his life.

Herman Brix broke his shoulder during filming, Touchdown; and, was unable to play Tarzan, in MGM's screen adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs's popular character, in the 1932 film, Tarzan the Ape Man. The injury prevented him from competing in the 1932 Olympics. At the time, he still held the world record for shot put. Swimming champion Johnny Weissmuller replaced him, as Tarzan, and became a major star.
