SYNOPSIS

Rawley College's star hurdler, Larry Haynes, has it all--looks, talent and popularity. According to his girl friend Gwen, he would be perfect if not for his ego, a sentiment shared by teammate Bobby Barnes and Spec Early, the editor of the school newspaper, the Rawley Razz . Sure that Larry will win the Joe Senior Popularity Contest, Barnes asks Spec to stuff the ballot box against Larry as a way of deflating his ego. Gwen decides to take her own action and starts to pay attention to dull-witted shot-putter Don Cooper, even though Don's girl friend Mary is a friend and sorority sister. The election goes to Don, and the subsequent attention from the media as well as from Gwen begins to have a negative effect on his game. As retaliation against Gwen, Mary asks Larry to the big dance, which is being held on the eve of the big meet. At the dance, after a great deal of rivalry, Gwen becomes engaged to Don, while Mary becomes engaged to Larry. Then, at the meet, both Don and Larry lose their first events, and Mary and Gwen send notes breaking their respective engagements. On the second events, Don and Larry are victorious, but the final meet results hinge on the performance of high jumper Barnes. On the promise that Larry will tell him how to tell the twins he has been dating apart, Barnes wins the event, and Rawley wins the meet. At the victory dance, Gwen and Mary are reunited with their original partners, but Barnes, who was assured by Larry that the twin he was in love with ... +
