November 28, 1942.  Boston College's football team is 8-0, having outscored their opponents by a combined 249-19.  All they need to do is beat 4-4-1 Holy Cross, and they will go to the Sugar Bowl.  They're so confident, they've even made reservations for an after party.  But Holy Cross stunned BC, 55-12.  The Eagles didn't feel much like partying after such an upset, so they cancelled their reservations - which were at the Cocoanut Grove nightclub in Boston.  That same night, the nightclub burned.  492 people were killed.  None of them were BC football players, coaches, or staff.  The greatest upset in sports history, because it meant so much more than just what happened on the field.
