1942 Holy Cross, 55; Boston College, 12
Never has there been a more fortuitous upset than this one. Undefeated and nearly unscored upon during their first eight games that year, Boston College's Eagles were so confident of capping a perfect season against the unranked Crusaders that it had made reservations for a victory party at the Coconut Grove nightclub the evening after the game. But after Holy Cross had left the Eagles in a 55-12 pile of dust, the disgusted BC eleven canceled the party---and a good thing, too, since that very night the Coconut Grove caught fire, killing 492 people in what remains the deadliest nightclub fire in U.S. history. Its interesting to note that the player's jersey numbers on the Program cover matched the final score.
1934 Holy Cross, 26; Harvard, 6
Holy Cross swept through the year with but two losses, and finished off on an up note by polishing off their traditional rivals from Boston College. Harvard was so disgusted with its annual setbacks at the hands of the Crusaders that after yet another loss in 1935 it dropped them from their schedule until after World War II.
1949 Yale, 14; Holy Cross, 7
Bad day at New Haven, but what a fabulous Crusader illustration on the cover.
