American duo Jordan Spieth and Jimmy Walker believe that they can pull off a Ryder Cup miracle by overturning their 10-6 deficit on Sunday.
Europe need just four points from the 12 singles matches to retain the trophy at Gleneagles after they dominated the afternoon foursomes for the second day in a row.
Two years ago it was Europe who performed the miraculous comeback after entering the final day in an identical position at Medinah, while USA came back from 10-6 after two days at Brookline in 1999.
Spieth believes that all his team-mates feel they can still win the Ryder Cup and looks at Medinah and Brookline for inspiration.
"Everyone in our team room believes that we can do that. They (still) have to win 4½ points out of 12 matches (to win outright)," Spieth said.
"Brookline was 10-6, Medinah was 10-6 the other way. Hopefully we get some good pairings and some guys out early to go make a move."
Raring to go
Spieth admitted that his side weren't good enough in the afternoon on Saturday but are determined to put that behind them as they look to make a fast start on Sunday. The Ryder Cup debutant also feel that with the likes of Phil Mickelson being rested for the whole day on Saturday, they are raring to go in the singles.
"There's a lot of guys on our team, a few of the best players in the world, that didn't play a match today and those guys are even more anxious than we are.
"We are going to come out strong as a team and put this afternoon behind us, because as a team it wasn't what we were looking for."
US could have been heading into the final day with a slightly easier task had Spieth and Jordan Reed not halved their foursomes match on the final hole. But the two rookies have been a major positive winning 2.5 points from a possible three.
Another American rookie, Walker, also believes that his team can overturn the four point deficit on the final day. Walker and Rickie Fowler were thrashed 5&4 in Saturday's foursomes by Victor Dubuisson and Graeme McDowell.
Walker is disappointed with the position they find themselves in but has confidence his side can overhaul the Europeans.
Walker said: "We have got guys that are playing well individually, and (it is) just unfortunate that obviously the Europeans have played well in the afternoon session.
"It's really just positioning the first two days for singles. We're in a tough position, but I feel like we can dig ourselves out of the hole. I like our squad. I like our guys. I've got faith in all of us."
