It doesn't really matter. Either way they lost. But just so we are clear on how absurd the NCAA rules regarding celebration are: If one player does a flip into the endzone or celebrates a touchdown, the TD is called back. If the entire team comes out onto the field to celebrate, it is cool. Got it?

You gotta keep your Vegas friends happy. That's what college football is all about!

@ cougzz. Especially for us in St. George since we are a 35 minute drive from betting in Mesquite haha.

Spare the sanctimony. Vegas was NOT happy.

Reports from CBS, ESPN, etc, are that Vegas bookies had to pay both sides. While the score was still 17-14 bookies paid people that took the Utes against the spread, yet people that took SC against the spread had to be paid when the score was changed.

A rare instance of the house losing all the way around.

I thought this year in college football, an unsportsmanlike penalty before the TD is scored negates the TD..?

I hated seeing the Utes lose, but I definitely take solace in the casinos losing 100% of the bets placed on the game!
