(At one point, it was changed to "which non-Nevada team would finish highest in the tournament," then they were allowed to accept bets on the two Nevada schools.)

It's possible that some casinos don't let students bet on games, in part because any UNLV athlete who bets on a UNLV event, even in a different sport, immediately loses all college eligibility, but it's not a requirement.
