UK-LSU ranked greatest comeback

Kentucky's rally at LSU in February 1994 is ranked as the No. 1 comeback in sports history by USA Today.

The Cats trailed the Tigers by 31 points with about 15:30 left but came back to win 99-95. Kentucky connected on 11 three-pointers and outscored LSU 62-27 in the last 15:34 to pull the game out.

“I can’t believe it,” Pitino told The New York Times. “I know I’ve never, ever witnessed anything like it.”

The Indianapolis Colts' 2003 comeback against Tampa Bay is ranked No. 2 by USA Today. The Colts scored 21 points in the final five minutes of the Monday Night Football game.

The Boston Red Sox coming back from a 3-0 deficit in the 2004 ALCS is No. 3.
