Football Outcome Determined from Above?

A few weeks ago the largest point spread in sports betting history was set at 70.5 for Florida State over Savannah State in college football. With 8:59 left in the third quarter and a Florida State lead of 55-0 the game was called due to lightening. Even with the astronomical spread the majority sided with Florida State so was this truly stopped due to an act of God or did Vegas have its hand in this one? I wasn't there to judge the weather but curious if the game could have been resumed. Generally 58 minutes of a game have to pass in football or wagers are cancelled so I am assuming people go their money back but once again Vegas takes no loss to Florida State bettors.
