No. 14 Austin Peay Upsets No. 3 Illinois
No. 14 Austin Peay came in as huge underdogs to a powerful Illinois squad in the 1987 NCAA Tournament. Not believing the Governors could win, Dick Vitale said he would stand on his head if they pulled off the upset. Well they did, stunning the Fightin’ Illini in the opening round. Suffice to say, Dickie V didn’t uphold his wager. (AP Photo/Jack Dempsey)
