Nevada’s Comeback Win Over Cincinnati Is In A Category All On Its Own
The Patriots Super Bowl comeback over the Falcons was more likely than Nevada winning.
One of a kind victory for the Wolf Pack
Nevada’s comeback was more than remarkable. The Wolf Pack looked all but dead to the AAC champions, and No. 2 seed, Cincinnati Bearcats. The deficit was 22 points with 11:11 left in the game, again Nevada seemed to be over. However, as Jon Rothstein always says: This is March.
He is right.
As that moment the Wolf Pack were given less than a tenth of a percent chance to pull off the comeback. This tweet notes at 7:45 p.m. ET that this game was all but done, and as noted this was much more of a comeback than the 28-3 deficit the New England Patriots were put in against the Atlanta Falcons for Super Bowl LI.
Here shows the swing of the live updates, and boy that graph flipped in a hurry!
With those 11:11 left in the game the Wolf Pack outscored the Bearcats 32-8 to have this unlikeliest of comebacks, and it proved a great moment of a shirtless Eric Musselman.
Up next, Nevada takes on Loyola-Chicago in the Sweet 16.
