Games that blow UNLV’s 124-75 win over Central Arkansas out of the water

Chace Stanback scored 29 points for the UNLV record-breaking game.

UNLV’s 124-75 win over Central Arkansas looked lopsided, but it’s got nothing on these all-time blowouts:

College Football


Georgia Tech over Cumberland A student manager for Cumberland, which had discontinued football, rounded up enough students (mostly frat brothers) to battle John Heisman’s mighty 1916 Yellow Jackets. Very. Bad. Idea.

Girl’s Basketball


Walkerville High over Lakeshore Public Academy “We never gave up, but they were a lot better than we were,” said Lakeshore’s Melissa Hawley, who sank her team’s only bucket in this 2003 nailbiter in Michigan.

Women’s Hockey


Slovakia over Bulgaria If you spent three minutes in the restroom during this 2008 Olympic qualifying game, you missed approximately 4.1 goals.



Bears over Redskins After Washington beat Chicago 7-3 three weeks before this 1940 NFL Championship game, Redskins owner George Preston Marshall reportedly called the Bears “crybabies and quitters.” Who’s cryin’ now, George?
