Logline - The true story of the highest scoring football game in history. In 1916, a wheeler-dealer assembles a ragtag team of Cumberland University law students to play an unauthorized football game against formidable Georgia Tech, led by legendary coach John Heisman. When the Cumberland players realize their predicament, they are forced to make a difficult decision: play what seems to be an unwinnable game and risk being caught and expelled, or back out and forfeit a financial penalty that will bankrupt the college.
