UPDATE (6:30 p.m. PT): The game is canceled! More rain!
There’s been lots of confusion on Twitter about the Florida State-Savannah State matchup after the two schools agreed to use a running clock for the duration of the second half.
The Seminoles took a 48-0 lead into halftime, well on their way to covering the 70.5-point spread that was being offered earlier in the week in Las Vegas.
However, outside of “all football games must go 55 minutes for action,” sportsbooks don’t have any other clock-related rules. As such, those of you hoping to get out of your Savannah State bets are stuck trying to hang on for the cover.
Our advice: Pray for rain.
There’s a decent chance that the game will get canceled if there’s a second delay.

For those who were asking, FSU game needed to go 55 mins for action and running clock would not nullify a game bet, no stipulations for it.
