Miami fans spit at Florida State players on Saturday, according to Seminoles wide receiver Kermit Whitfield.

The Florida State-Miami rivalry is very intense, and Hurricane fans let out some serious frustration on Saturday night. The game was briefly delayed at one point because 'Canes fans started throwing trash on the field, in protest of a controversial targeting call in the fourth quarter.

That's not all, according to Seminoles wide receiver Kermit Whitfield. On Monday, he told reporters that Miami fans attempted to spit on Florida State players as they entered the locker room.

Tomahawk Nation posted video of Whitfield describing the incident on Monday.

Whitfield had an eventful day on Saturday. He was the receiver who was hit on the targeting call, and caught a 20-yard touchdown to give Florida State a 17-13 lead in the late third quarter. He had his best game of the season against the 'Canes, catching seven passes for 83 yards and his first score of the year.

Saturday was also Whitfield's birthday. Quite a way to celebrate it.

Miami looked to have a game-tying touchdown in the final minutes of Saturday's game, but a blocked extra point sealed the dramatic road win for the 'Noles.
