LSU and Texas A&M have played one of the craziest college football games of the season tonight, as the Tigers and Aggies are now in their third overtime at Kyle Field in College Station, Texas.

The officiating - or, really, lack thereof - has greatly contributed to the wildness that's ensued at the end of the game.

There was extreme controversy at the end of the fourth quarter, when the officials decided to not review very questionable fourth down spot.

The officiating hasn't gotten any better in the overtime sessions, either. "The officiating/replay booth have been embarrassing in College Station tonight. As bad as I’ve ever seen," USA TODAY's Dan Wolken tweeted.

"Worst officiated game I’ve ever seen. Any sport," one fan tweeted.

"This game is an embarassment to the SEC officiating. Many people need to lose their jobs on Monday," another tweeted.

LSU and Texas A&M are certainly going to have a lot to say after this one.

The finish is being televised on SEC Network.
