Underdogs you might not have been watching

Fresno State advanced to the CWS final yesterday. After starting the year 8-12, they finshed the season 16-4. They're the first #4 regional seed to reach the CWS and should they win, they'll set a record for most losses by a champion.

They take on Georgia tonight at 7 pm on ESPN2.

Russia beat the tournament favorite Netherlands in overtime to advance to the semis of Euro '08. Left for dead after getting trounced 4-1 by Spain in their opening game, they've won three in a row. Much credit should to go to their coach, Guus Hiddink, who seems to be the Larry Brown of international soccer, and to Andrei Arshavin who was in the middle of every offensive threat after returning from a two game suspension.

Their rematch with Spain in the semis is 2:45 on Thursday, ESPN.
