USC covers pointspread 2 hours after game ends. WTF

If you bet on college football like I do, get a load of this f**king bulls**t:

Almost everybody in the Coliseum thought the officials ruled Harris' touchdown didn't count because of an unsportsmanlike-conduct penalty called when much of the USC bench ran onto the field to celebrate, mobbing him in the end zone. But long after the Coliseum had emptied, the Pac-12 announced that Harris had scored after all, saying the penalty was what didn't count.

USC was favored by eight or nine points for most of the week leading up to the game.


Final score was 23-14


Apparently about half the casinos paid out, and half of them said f**k off.

why doesn't it matter especially after the game ends? I've never seen something like that happen in the NFL, even after they said a TD or whatever should have been good. Tsk

There's definitely something fishy going on. I'm curious to know what the line started off at. Good thing I didn't bet on the Utes to cover, or the PAC-12 office woulda got blown the f**k up.
ya that's pretty insane, and it should really be looked into.

I don't think Vegas had anything to do with this.

Because many casinos have to pay both sides if the score is changed, so they'd be out a ton of money by doing this.

Basically most of the casinos got pwned by this

You're probably right, but it raises eyebrows nonetheless. It's not like Vegas hasn't influenced outcomes before, and what can possibly be gained by changing the score? The only ones who have something to gain are the people who bet on USC. And I'm sure the line shifted during the week in an attempt to offset USC being the heavy favorite.

It just doesn't make any sense, and it's unprecedented as far as I know.

That's retarded. The Utah betters shoulda cashed in right away, getting their money. If the USC betters didn't throw away their ticked, they shoulda cashed in too. They DID technically cover if the official final score was changed. Casinos gotta know going into it that this kinda s**t could happen.
