Some people in Las Vegas may have been upset about the outcome of the South Carolina-Georgia game.
The Gamecocks had just scored a touchdown with less than two minutes to go to make it a 21-14 game. South Carolina was an 8-point underdog against Georgia, so at that time the Gamecocks were covering the spread. SEC Network play-by-play announcer Brent Musberger alluded to this fact when South Carolina made the extra point.
If Georgia had just recovered the kick, and nothing more, it’s unlikely the Bulldogs would have scored, giving gamblers who picked South Carolina the win. The problem was that Terry Godwin recovered the kick and returned it for a touchdown.
Onside kick? NOPE

Musberger sounded a bit disappointed on Godwin’s touchdown. And Twitter took notice.
South Carolina's onside kick wasn't far enough, but UGA returned it for a touchdown anyway
Brent does not seem happy

What a bad beat for the Gamecocks. Hopefully, Musburger had the right side.
