Never has there been a more fortuitous upset than this one. Undefeated and nearly unscored upon during their first eight games that year, Boston College's Eagles were so confident of capping a perfect season against the unranked Crusaders that it had made reservations for a victory party at the Coconut Grove nightclub the evening after the game. But after Holy Cross had left the Eagles in a 55-12 pile of dust, the disgusted BC eleven canceled the party---and a good thing, too, since that very night the Coconut Grove caught fire, killing 492 people in what remains the deadliest nightclub fire in U.S. history.
