One of the more interesting stories Saturday was the halting of the Wisconsin-U.N.L.V. game with less than eight minutes to play due to a power outage. At the time, Wisconsin had a 27-7 lead; as you might expect, Badger fans who had RV'd to Vegas were pissed off big time, not at the fact that their school won, but that the game ended before it could become "official" by the standards of the sports books in Nevada, which is 55 minutes. I don't what my favorite quote was from this article: the Luxor sports book supervisor who described the scene at his casino as "a bunch of Cheesehead fans that were outraged..." or the Wisconsin native who said that the whole thing "stinks of Vegas chicanery."
