Saturday afternoon, the Georgia State Panthers pulled off an absolutely shocking upset when they knocked off the Tennessee Volunteers on the road. It was the program's first win over a 'Power 5' program in its history.

After the game, head coach Shawn Elliott took a little shot at Tennessee's conference - the SEC. Specifically, he mocked the league's "It Just Means More" slogan.

"I am so proud to be a part of you. 10 years man, this program has been around for 10 years. I said it out there. They say the SEC just means more. Today's game meant more to us."

Elliott was promptly cheered by his players. Check it out:

Fans of programs that don't reside in the SEC are very tired of hearing about the league's superiority. That said, it hasn't exactly been the best decade for Tennessee - so we're not sure the Vols are really included in that sentiment.

Regardless, that shouldn't diminish what the Panthers accomplished. It's a big win that the players will remember for the rest of their lives.

Tennessee, meanwhile, will have to regroup before it takes on BYU next Saturday night.
