You may have missed this yesterday, but there was a gigantic upset in the world of college basketball.
Eastern Illinois University traveled to Iowa for a game that should have been a cakewalk for the Hawkeyes. EIU was a 31.5 point underdog and won. ESPN stats summarized it best:
- There have been 90,000 men’s college basketball games with lines over the last 30 years.
- 30 point underdogs were 0-558 over that stretch.
- With the Eastern Illinois upset victory over Iowa, that record is now 1-558, making it one of the biggest upsets ever.
Watch the reaction when Eastern Illinois coach Marty Simmons came into the locker room to meet with the team after their upset….
