The South Alabama Jaguars got a two-point lead on UCLA and didn't know how to act.

With just over three minutes to go, the Jags had the chance to stretch their lead to five and possibly steal a huge win on the road vs. a Power-5 team.

Instead they opted to go with a fake field goal attempt that went nowhere fast, eventually losing by one.

Fans reacted to the very questionable call on social media.

"USA! USA! (Ended up losing 32-31)," tweeted Grant Wahl.

"Not a very Sun Belt worthy play, South," commented Ben Stanfield.

"Are you [expletive] kidding me, this is the way South Alabama lost," another replied.

"This is not #FunBelt," said Chris Hudgison.

"Oh this is just painful to watch!" tweeted WESH's Kendra Douglas.

Talk about fumbling the bag.
