Plot Outline:

Sanctions force the Texas State University Fightin' Armadillos to lose nearly their entire football team and, without the aid of scholarships, must recruit through their student body. A 34-year-old quarterback, a female soccer star/kicker, a well-muscled science teacher help fill out the 17-person roster - but can they pull it together to make it through the season? -- Chris Kavan

A fairly run of the mill sports movie with all the cliches in place, but Bakula and Elizondo are always very watchable.

This one is not a touchdown, not a fumble either

"Paul Blake" (Scott Backula) was a star player on his high school football team with a million-dollar throwing arm. He had a promising college football future until he gave it all up to run the family farm after the death of his father.
