With fewer players than most teams, the makeshift team must overcome obstacles that the best teams in the country couldn’t deal with. Using a 34 year old quarterback, a female placekicker and a gang of misfits, Ed “Straight Arrow” Genero must take his team to play the number one Texas Colts.
Plot: When the Texas Southern Armadillos football team is disqualified for cheating and poor grades, the University is forced to pick from a team that actually goes to school. Will they even win a single game?

Aging quarterback returns to college
You can read most details of the film in other, more complete reviews, pro and con. But I need to add an oddity.
The movie team, the Texas State University Fighting Armadillos, battles to a pounding against the Southwest Texas State Bobcats in one game. The point I want to make is that the REAL Southwest Texas State in San Marcos, TX changed its name in real life to Texas State University–San Marcos (the “–San Marcos” designation has also recently been dropped). So, in the movie, the problematic TSU university team in green and white plays its own real-life future alter ego, the real maroon-and-gold SWT Bobcats, complete with cheerleaders. The Armadillo mascot for Texas State in the movie is fictitious, but the Bobcats are real.
Since the movie was made in 1991 and the name change took place in 2003, the two movie opponent school names — before anyone knew about the future name change — eventually became the same university in reality.
Footnote: I graduated from Southwest Texas State in 1978 in journalism, with a minor in art. When the name change happened, the Alumni Association wrote and asked if I wanted a new diploma with the new college name, which I did opt for. So they sent me a new diploma with the new school name. I now have two diplomas from the same university (different names) with the same degree and minor.
According to WOAI-AM radio station in San Antonio, the total cost of the name change and resulting associated do-overs (stationary letterheads, repainting, etc) was $350,000, paid for by private donations.
Awesome football movie. PG rating so most of the best fighting scenes must have been cut
