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.

Won't win points for originality (how many times have we seen underdog/misfit teams go the distance and win the big game) though this does star an older crowd. If you like sports comedies, you can do worse, so worth checking out if you're a fan of that particular genre, anyway.
