Heading into Thursday night, the Texas A&M Aggies were double-digit underdogs against the South Carolina Gamecocks, per OddsShark. The Aggies proved the doubters wrong, however, trampling the Gamecocks in a dominant 52-28 win.

Unfortunately for one furniture store in College Station, that result ended up being rather costly.

According to Robert Cessna of The Eagle, a local Ashley Furniture HomeStore offered to pay customers the amount of their furniture purchases between Aug. 16 and Aug. 27 if the Aggies beat the Gamecocks by 10 or more points.

According to ESPN.com's Darren Rovell, the store owes customers more than $1 million total. Luckily, the store purchased insurance that will ease the financial burden.
