I have to go with Wisconsin beating Nebraska in the 2012 Big Ten Championship Game.

But the most improbable upset I've seen in college football was Auburn shocking Alabama on Chris Davis' 109 yards missed field goal for a touchdown in the 2013 Iron Bowl. This was the season after when the Crimson Tide beat Notre Dame in the BCS National Championship Game.

As a NC State fan, there are lots of memorable games that include last second wins at UNC on a season long field goal, the complete domination of Notre Dame in the Gator Bowl, etc. That said, I think that the 1986 match-up with South Carolina is my most memorable. Seemingly out of reach, the Wolfpack won the game after a defensive lineman for USC went offsides on the final offensive play for NC State as the clock ran out. Since a game cannot end on a defensive penalty, the Wolfpack was given one last play from scrimmage with 0 on the clock. The play resulted in a TD as the desperation Hail Mary pass is completed to Danny Peebles in the end zone. NC State and South Carolina had a long standing rivalry that was pretty much a knotted affair in the W/L column over time. Unfortunately that rivalry "ended" when USC joined the SEC.

I'll also assume every BC fans would remember Doug Flutie's Hail Mary against Miami.

1982 Cal vs Stanford...........craziest ending ever with the band already on the field !

2001.........unranked Auburn defeating #1 Florida on a field goal at the end of the game.

The TV announcer was screaming.............."Auburn wins, Auburn wins" and then the kicker sprints past the Florida bench and gives the gator chomp.

The announcer screaming.........."Auburn wins, Auburn wins, See you later alligator " ...

Joe Starkey - "Oh THE BAND IS OUT ON THE FIELD!!! HE'S GOING TO THE END ZONE!!! THE BEARS HAVE WON!!!" Starkey nearly lost his voice in that game.

I still have to say it was the 2013 Bama vs Auburn runback after the missed fieldgoal. There have been other greats that have just slipped my memory.
