Central Michigan Stunner Leaves Stillwater Bookies Celebrating, Fans, Bettors in Shock

Central Michigan may have just pulled the biggest upset of this young College Football season thus far, beating number 22 ranked Oklahoma State 30-27. 

Central Michigan entered this game as a +20 underdog.

It wasn’t the cleanest win with much controversy surrounding the officiating.  In particular, a misinterpreted rule extended the game when it should have been over and allowed the Chippewas to score a wild winning touchdown on a Hail Mary and lateral.

"Despite the error, this will not change the outcome of the contest," Bill Carollo, the NCAA's coordinator of football officials, said in a statement released by the MAC.

That did not satisfy Oklahoma State athletic director Mike Holder.

"We had conversations with everyone that could help us understand the situation and do something about the outcome. We were told the result is final and there is nothing we can do about it," Holder said in a statement. "In my mind, it is incomprehensible that a misapplication of the rules after time has expired can't be corrected."
