100. Butt Fumble! ??

Nov. 12, 2012

This decade treated us to perhaps the greatest blooper in NFL history. On Thanksgiving Day 2012, Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez missed the handoff to his running back, turned to run up field – and ran facemask first into his right guard’s rear. The impact forced a fumble, which the Patriots returned for a touchdown. The “butt fumble” was born that night, and Sanchez’s career was never the same. – Michael McClymont

99. Iceland stuns England at Euros ?

June 27, 2016

During its maiden participation in a major tournament, Iceland scored a stoppage-time winner against Austria to secure second place in its group, setting the scene for a dream date with England in the last 16. Not even Wayne Rooney’s fourth-minute penalty could dampen Iceland’s spirits. Ragnar Sigurdsson and Kolbeinn Sigthorsson spearheaded a remarkably quick turnaround, aided by Joe Hart’s gaffe, and Iceland promptly slammed the door shut to become the smallest nation to ever win a knockout stage match at the tournament. – Alex Moretto

98. UConn goes 40-0 ?

April 8, 2014

UConn had four undefeated seasons prior to 2013-14, but its 40-0 campaign that year was perhaps the most significant. The Huskies destroyed a 37-0 Notre Dame squad by 21 points in the national championship to give the school and head coach Geno Auriemma a record ninth Division I crown. UConn’s victory also completed a sweep of the men’s and women’s title games, a decade after the Huskies became the only school to accomplish the feat. – Chicco Nacion
