The biggest upset in the 3rd Round: Kidderminster 2-1 Reading.
6th-division side Kidderminster Harriers (of Worcestershire) defeated 2nd division side Reading. At kick-off, Kidderminster were 5th in the National League North [#120 in the League pyramid; although normally that would be #121, but there are only 23, and not 24, teams in the 5th division this season]. Reading were in 21st place in the EFL Championship [#41 in the League pyramid]. So the difference between Kidderminster and Reading was 4 League-levels and 79 league-places. Kidderminster, as of Monday the 31st of January, sit 3rd in the National League North, 7 points behind leaders Gateshead (but with a game in hand).
-From theguardian.com/football, Kidderminster’s Amari Morgan-Smith stuns Reading to pull off FA Cup upset (by Peter Lansley on 8 Jan 2022).

(The second-biggest upset in the 3rd Round was 4th tier side Hartlepool United 2-1 over 2nd division side Blackpool: which was a difference of 2 League-levels and 52 league-places.)

(The third-biggest upset in the 3rd Round was 3rd tier side Cambridge United 1-0 over Premier League side Newcastle United: which was a difference of 2 League-levels and 41 league-places.)
