When UConn women’s basketball’s 111-game winning streak came to an end on Friday, social media did what it does best: it brought out the hilarious and the incredible.
Most notably, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott — who himself went to Mississippi State — was seen with a priceless reaction on television in the video above.
Roger Goodell should supsend Dak Prescott for exessive celebration. Absolute disgrace

Of course, outlandish reactions are understandable: UConn was the favorite to win.
UConn women were -7,000 to beat Miss St straightup @WilliamHillUS. A bettor risked $7,000 to win $100 on the Huskies. Miss St won in OT.

ESPN business reporter Darren Rovell noted the effect that the upset had on prices to the title game.
This morning, you could have bought a ticket to the women's title game on Sunday for $67.
Get-in is now $275.
