The Packers entered the game as two-time defending champions and were widely considered the greatest team ever assembled. Their opponents, the 1963 College All-Stars, were given no chance at all. But that night, before a Soldier Field crowd of 65,000 and a nationwide television audience, the All-Stars shocked the world. In what would be the last All-Star victory in the long unique history of this beloved series, the collegians defeated Green Bay by a score of 20- 17. "They shouldn''t beat us in a million years," a depressed and bewildered Green Bay quarterback Bart Starr said after the game, "but they did." Starry Knights tells the story of how they did it.
