Everyone likes to root for an underdog. Here are a couple sporting events where that support paid off.
|1.||Appalachian State beats #5 Michigan in the season opener at Michigan Stadium (2007): They led nearly the entire game and with seconds left, gave up a big play that put Michigan in the position to win with this field goal...|
|2.||U.S. beats Soviets Olympic ice hockey, 1980: Not only a huge upset in sports, but an unbelievable moment in the context of American history.|
|3.||Buster Douglas KOs Mike Tyson for heavyweight championship, 1990: Tyson was seen as invincible at the time, making his improbable loss to little known Buster Douglas all the more surprising.|
|4.||Golden State Warriors eliminate Dallas Mavericks in the first round of the 2007 playoffs: The Mavericks were the biggest favorites to win the west since the Kobe/Shaq Lakers.|
|5.||N.C. State knocks off Houston to win 1983 NCAA championship. Everyone counted Jimmy Valvano and his N.C. State team out... but everyone was wrong|
