On Saturday afternoon, Rivalry Weekend was in full swing with a few of the biggest rivalry games in college football. Ohio State vs. Michigan and Florida vs. Florida State were the headliners for the 12:00 p.m. ET kickoff time.

The Gators and Seminoles took the field to renew their rivalry yet again. Early in the first quarter, the Gators found themselves in the red zone with a chance to take a touchdown lead.

Unfortunately, poor play-calling led to zero points for Florida. Immediately, fans flocked to Twitter to call out head coach Dan Mullen for his decision-making while the team had a chance to come away with points.

A quick "Dan Mullen" search on Twitter yields results like this.

There's more reaction to the decision - including a few unsavory tweets - if you search here.

Florida and Florida State remain tied at 0 with just over three minutes remaining in the first quarter.

Stay tuned.
