TOP FIVE BIGGEST UPSETS IN SPORTS HISTORY!

In honor of Ohio State's huge upset victory in the College Football National Championship today we count down the Top Five Biggest Upsets in Sports History!

#5) 2004 AL Baseball Championship Series, The Red Sox rally from 3-0 against the NY Yankees

From XFinity Sports: “The Boston Red Sox had not won a World Series since 1918 - until 2004. They swept the Anaheim Angels after entering the postseason as the AL Wild Card, setting themselves up for a rematch with their AL East rivals New York Yankees. Down 3-0 in the series, the Red Sox fought back and ended up taking the series 4-3 from the Bombers. Boston crushed the Yankees in Game 7, in Yankee Stadium, to close out the series.” 

#4) 2009 Kentucky Derby, 50-1 shot Mine That Bird wins the whole thing

From Bleacher Report: Calvin Borel, you are a lunatic. But wow, can you win.  He is nuts because whenever he races, he will get behind the pack so that he can get in position to ride the rail to make a push to the front.  Borel entered the 2009 Kentucky Derby jockeying Mine That Bird, a 50-1 shot to win the race.  He faded back, took the rail and, well...Yep, you guessed it. He won.”

#3) 2007, Appalachian State vs. Michigan State College Football Game

From Business Insider.com: “When the Appalachian State Mountaineers beat No. 5 Michigan in 2007, it was the first time a Football Championship Subdivision school had ever beat a ranked Football Bowl Subdivision school.  Oh, and Appalachian State pulled it off in the Big House, in front of 109,000 Michigan fans.”

#2) 1990, Buster Douglas knocks out Mike Tyson 

From Business Insider.com: In 1990, Mike Tyson was still one of the most dangerous fighters in the ring, and in his last fight before meeting Douglas, he knocked out his opponent in 93 seconds. Douglas was a 42-1 underdog, but he punished Tyson's left eye and left him all but blind. In the tenth round, Douglas knocked out Tyson with a flurry of punches to the head.”

#1) 1980, USA vs. USSR Hockey Game aka the “Miracle on Ice”

From Wikipedia: “The "Miracle on Ice" is the name in American popular culture for a medal-round men's ice hockey game during the 1980 Winter Olympics at Lake Placid, New York, on Friday, February 22. The United States national team, made up of amateur and collegiate players and led by coach Herb Brooks, defeated the Soviet Union national team, which had won the gold medal in six of the seven previous Olympic games.”
