    Underdog Tales: Leicester City's Dream Season

    Underdog Tales: Leicester City's Dream Season

    Today we continue our series of Underdog Tales, highlighting some of the greatest upsets in sports history.
    This episode, we dive into a story about football -- English football that is!
    Before the 2015 English Premier League season began, Leicester City was given 5000-1 odds to end the season as champions.
    The season before, they had barely escaped relegation, and they had a brand new manager. So a little skepticism about their prospects made sense. But 5000-1? Those odds were truly off the charts.
    However, Leicester had some tricks up their sleeve. And what happened next turned into one of the most magical sports moments we've ever seen.
    When the Foxes pulled off the impossible, it changed the world of sports betting forever.
    So how did this small market team defeat the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Man U? Listen in to hear how it all went down.

    Underdog Tales: Stanford Beats 41-Point Favorite USC - Harbaugh vs Carroll

    Underdog Tales: Stanford Beats 41-Point Favorite USC - Harbaugh vs Carroll

    Today we continue our series of Underdog Tales, highlighting some of the greatest upsets in sports history.
    This episode, we dive into the 2007 clash between USC and Stanford's football teams! At the time it was played, it was the largest point spread upset in college football -- ever.
    Stanford and USC have been battling on the gridiron for over 100 years. Through the decades, there's been plenty of drama. The 2007 meeting was just another chapter in a litany of contentious matchups.
    And it was the first of many meetings between two soon-to-be-rival head coaches: Pete Carroll of USC, and Jim Harbaugh of Stanford -- a pair of men with huge football acumen, and even bigger personalities.
    In 2007, USC was a powerhouse. Stanford was limping after a 1-11 season. And they were playing without their starting QB.
    So how did Stanford pull off the fourth quarter comeback to seal the upset? Listen in to hear how it all went down.
