"The thrill that comes once in a lifetime is to score the winning touchdown for the varsity team when all seems lost. That is what happens to Tom Marlowe, football hero of Tait University, but the honor nearly escapes him when he flunks his astronomy examination. The harsh old professor is insistent that Tom qualify in this study, and things look dark, until Patricia, Tom's sweetheart, induces her cousin Connie to tutor him. For once Tom places the habits of the stars on an equal footing with the gyrations of the pigskin and digs in. There are many surprises in store. First of all, Tom falls in love with Connie. Then, the professor, hated by everyone for his insistence upon rules and regulations, turns out to be tender-hearted and passes Tom on the eve of the big game. And the game itself--what a game! Tom is sorely needed, and the suspense is lifted when he makes the winning touchdown."--Publisher's website
