Stephen F. Austin beats Duke for biggest upset in 15 years

Down goes Duke! Down goes Duke!

The Duke Blue Devils lost at home to Stephen F. Austin 85-83 in overtime on Tuesday night in what will go down as the biggest upset in college basketball over the last 15 years, according to spreads.

The Lumberjacks won the game on a layup by Nathan Bain just before the buzzer:

Duke was favored by 27.5 points entering the game, making this the biggest upset by spread.

Duke was 6-0 and ranked No. 1 prior to the defeat. They hadn’t lost a non-conference game at home since 2000 prior to this one. They join Kentucky, who lost to Evansville, as a number one team to fall in a huge upset early this season.

Who saw this one coming?
