LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

UNLV’s loss to Howard made history Saturday night as the biggest college football upset of all time. There were a lot of disappointed rebel fans, and on top of that, a lot of people disappointed that they didn't bet on Howard.

Howard scored five touchdowns to beat UNLV, who was favored to win by forty five points. Only a handful of people picked Howard + 45, but that bet payed out. Odds maker RJ Bell says a $100 bet on an outright Howard win would have paid $55,000.

If someone had put $100 down and parlayed liberty over Baylor and Howard over UNLV, they’d come away with $4.1 million.

There's no money line on games like these, a only a handful of people placed bets on this game, but now a lot more are wishing they had.
