Top 10 Sports Underdog Winners of All Time


6.Appalachian State


Michigan’s 2003 Wolverines came into this “cupcake” match up ranked #5 in the country. But the scrappy I-AA Mountaineers would quickly put a damper on their title hopes by walking out of the “Big House” with a 34-32 win.

7.New York Giants

After the New England Patriots steamrolled through the 2007 season without a single defeat, a Super Bowl victory seemed like a foregone conclusion, but thanks to David Tyree’s famous helmet catch, the Giants were able to topple the Patriots and put the sole blemish on their record.

8.Villanova Wildcats

Led by NBA legend Patrick Ewing, the 1985 Georgetown Hoyas were considered a lock to win the title. All the Villanova Wildcats did was shoot a blistering 78 percent on their way to pulling off the upset cutting down the nets.

9.New York Jets

Joe Namath’s famous guarantee is what most remember from Super Bowl III, as the AFL’s Jets struck a blow for the “lesser” league by defeating the Baltimore Colts, who were 18 point favorites.
