College football star Nick Bonnelli (Tony Curtis) drops out of college after his parents are killed while traveling to one of his games. He signs up with a smaller school, but he decides that he no longer wants anything to do with football–much to the chagrin of fellow students and faculty.
Thankfully, beautiful Sharon (Lori Nelson) gradually helps Nick come out of his shell, and it seems he just may be ready to put his fears to rest about playing football when he shows up to the biggest game of the year–and the players need his help. Aka The Winning Way.
Among the real-life footballers who appear are Tom Harmon, Elmer Willhoite, Jim Sears and Frank Gifford.
