UNLV’s 124-75 win over Central Arkansas looked lopsided, but it’s got nothing on these all-time blowouts:
Georgia Tech over Cumberland A student manager for Cumberland, which had discontinued football, rounded up enough students (mostly frat brothers) to battle John Heisman’s mighty 1916 Yellow Jackets. Very. Bad. Idea.
Walkerville High over Lakeshore Public Academy “We never gave up, but they were a lot better than we were,” said Lakeshore’s Melissa Hawley, who sank her team’s only bucket in this 2003 nailbiter in Michigan.
Slovakia over Bulgaria If you spent three minutes in the restroom during this 2008 Olympic qualifying game, you missed approximately 4.1 goals.
Bears over Redskins After Washington beat Chicago 7-3 three weeks before this 1940 NFL Championship game, Redskins owner George Preston Marshall reportedly called the Bears “crybabies and quitters.” Who’s cryin’ now, George?
