"Cheers" Reynolds has a pair of suitors, Paddy O'Riley and Ossie Merrill, both football stars. As the boys leave their hometown for separate colleges, Cheers makes it clear Ossie is the one she prefers.
Ossie neglects writing to her, and when Paddy returns to town, his friend and teammate Dutch Schultz tries to let Cheers know how much Paddy misses her. Dutch himself falls for a newspaper reporter, Florence Taylor.
When their school, Green Ridge, gets invited to play in the Rose Bowl football game, Paddy and Dutch look forward to playing against Ossie's team. The coach, Soapy Moreland, catches his star player Paddy in a room after curfew with Cheers and suspends him from the game. But he has a change of heart, Green Ridge wins and Cheers comes to the locker room to tell Paddy he's her guy.
