When Harvard came back from a 16-point deficit with less than a minute to go to tie Yale in the now-famous 1968 gridiron tilt, the headline in the Harvard Crimson the following Monday proudly boasted Harvard Beats Yale 29 - 29. This example and nineteen extraordinary comeback stories are the subjects of the authors' latest volume of sports achievements. Includes the story of 1914 miracle Braves, Billy Casper's rally to defeat Arnold Palmer in 1966 U.S. Open, the Giants magical playoff run in 1951, and other examples and details on specific figures such as Lance Armstrong and Michael Jordan.
