Mike has wearied of Freda but she will go to any lengths to keep him. Freda's objective in posing the unusual task to Patty is to exhaust Bob, to make him unfit for playing good football and thus allow her boyfriend Mike to triumph in the upcoming game for Hampton College. Patty is unaware of Freda's ulterior motives but complies as ordered by her senior sorority sister. When the big game comes along, Freda wants Parker's halfback out of the game completely and concocts an elaborate plot to get him arrested and held in jail the afternoon of the game. Everything goes according to plan, but Patty informs the police about Freda's nefarious plot and Bob is released in time for the final quarter. Bob wins the game for Parker, snags a professional contract with the Wolverines incidentally, and forgives Patty. Patty is tearfully grateful.
