There was a sea of red in this gambling mecca last weekend, but it wasn't necessarily the color of Wisconsin fans' apparel. It was the color of their faces. Hundreds of Badger football fans were outraged that Saturday's Wisconsin-Nevada Las Vegas game was called with 7:41 left and the Badgers holding a 27-7 lead. Wisconsin, a six-or seven-point favorite at most sports books at kickoff, was 2:41 from an apparent victory against the betting line when the lights went out at Sam Boyd Stadium because of an equipment failure at a power riser.

Lee, who won the 2012 Biletnikoff Award, is expected to turn pro despite being slowed and sidelined this season because of injuries.

Three-quarters of St. Louis High School's nationally ranked football team have been placed on probation for allegedly drinking beer during a trip to Las Vegas, hiring exotic dancers and then trashing their hotel rooms. The school's president, the Rev. Mario Pariante, said Thursday that 60 of the team's 88 players were put on probation. Although the players remain with the team, another serious offense could lead to expulsion.
