The characters are based on individual members of the football team. The Yale fullback is dating Meryl Streep. A tackle has been George Bush's roommate for three years. Meanwhile, Harvard had been expected to have a rebuilding year. Their only returning offensive lineman is Al Gore's roommate Tommy Lee Jones. Their safety had been fighting in the siege of Khe Sanh six months earlier. Nonetheless, they surprise everyone, including themselves, by patching together an undefeated season going into the Yale game. Yale is heavily favored. The game proceeds as expected. Yale dominates. With five minutes left in the first half Yale leads 22-0. Harvard makes a desperate move. They bench their starting quarterback and insert Frank Champi, a shy, introspective and virtually unknown (even to his teammates) back-up who can throw the ball long with either hand.
