The Upset

The visiting team entered the game as 41-point underdogs against the #2 ranked powerhouse with 39 future pros defending a 35-game home field win streak. With under a minute to go in the 4th quarter, trailing by six on their opponent’s 10 yard line, the young QB in his first game as starter took the snap and threw up a lob to the left side of the end zone, where – heavily defended – the receiver hauled it in for the game tying touchdown. With the successful extra point, the underdogs took a one point lead, and held on for the astounding upset. Playmaker: Matthew J.
