Yard Wars: Episode V — The Underdog Strikes Back
Perhaps the most stand-out moments come from underdogs doing great things in football. The Boise State trick play to win a 2006-2007 season bowl game, the Appalachian State shocker over Michigan during the beginning of the 2007-2008 college football season and the big win by the underdog New York Giants over the undefeated New England Patriots in the 2008 Super Bowl are all great examples.
Moments such as the ones mentioned above are unpredictable, and few people, if anyone, ever sees them coming — that's what makes them so memorable and cherished by fans.
So who will be the standout underdog teams in football this season? What scheduled matchups do you expect to result in crowd-pleasing plays that may go down in history? Leave your predictions in the comments section.
