41Giants def Packers 2007 NFC Championship Game

What a field goal! 47 yards, very disappointing for every Packer fan and every Packer player. But hopefully Favre won't retire!

42Kansas Jayhawks upsets Oklahoma for NCAA Championship in 1988
43USSR controversially defeats USA for Gold Medal in 1972 Olympics Basketball

True final score: USA 50, USSR 49 -- Political final score: USA 50, USSR 51 - DRIVEIN101

Oh please drivein101. The Soviet Union beat the US and you know it. 51-50 was the true final score.

44Chaminade defeats No. 1 Virginia - Dec. 23, 1982

Really? 45?

Chaminade is the equivalent of a community collage and they beat the #1 overall team in the nation, Virginia, who had just manhandled the China national team.

NCAA Men's Basketball - Virginia had the best player in the country, 7'4" Ralph Sampson and the #1 ranking, and were beat by a Div. 2 (then NAIA) Chaminade.

The number 1 team in the nation, a basketball powerhouse led by college and pro hall of famer Ralph Sampson is defeated by Chaminade from the NAIA. A school with 8000 students, and no real athletic program.

45Florida Def Ohio State 2006 BCS Title Game

Gators surprise the Nation by defeating the heavily favored Buckeyes for the National title 41-14

46Oregon St. def Cal 2007
47India def. Sri Lanka In the 2011 Cricket World Cup
48Seahawks defeat Broncos In Super Bowl 48

This game was UNBELIEVABLE. I could not BELIEVE how far my team fell. I had high expectations for this to be an exciting game, but the second Seattle got that safety and THEN a touchdown, I knew it was over. I had no fun watching this game.

As a seahawks fan I Will Never Forget this

Mainly for how lopsided the score was - Curti2594

57Phelps Beats Cavic by 1 One Hundredth of a Second

That's faster than a blink of an eye. One Olympic race. Only one gold medal. When you've trained more than 10 miles a day, for over a decade, and win by one hundredth of a second... Add to that that the race helped make Michael Phelps the most decorated Olympian ever, any sport... Epic!
