Description by OLDIES.com:
Bob Cantfield and Jim Halloran after an initial scrap become close friends. When Bob escorts Vivian Saunders to the prom, Jim is jealous but faithful to his friend. However as Bob becomes the hero of the football team Jim's jealousy and envy build.
During the latter half of the 1920s, Hollywood virtually flooded the theaters with films about college life. The plot to this one is so standard, it's barely worth relating: Two friends (Rex Lease and Robert Agnew) like the same girl (Pauline Garon). There's the big football game, and the home team is down, 0-6, with only two minutes left to go. Finally the two buddies are let into the game...fill in the blanks. This film was so predictable that Charles Paddock, who portrayed a head coach for just about every studio in '20s Hollywood, plays -- take a huge guess -- the coach! The cockeyed Ben Turpin, as the dormitory valet, adds some slapstick humor to COLLEGE HERO, and he's about the only bright spark to be had here.
