On Saturday afternoon, the South Carolina Gamecocks hosted the Florida Gators in a highly-anticipated SEC showdown.

South Carolina shocked the college football world last weekend by going into Georgia and taking down the Bulldogs. After knocking off the No. 3 team in the country, the Gamecocks welcomed the No. 9 team in their home stadium.

Much like the game against Georgia, South Carolina isn't going away quietly.

Midway through the fourth quarter, South Carolina turned the ball over on its own 30-yard line. Florida quarterback Kyle Trask appeared to throw an interception in the end-zone on the ensuing possession, but the interception was waved off.

Officials threw a flag on South Carolina, which overturned the interception.

Gamecocks fans were not happy with the call and hurled debris - water bottles and other trash - onto the field.

Florida went on to score on the drive, taking a 31-20 lead in the game.

The Gators' touchdown created more controversy after it came on a "pick play" where a wide receiver clearly blocked a defender. South Carolina coach Will Muschamp lit into the officials on the sideline after the play.

Florida holds an 11-point lead with just over six minutes left.

Can the Gamecocks find a way to come back? Stay tuned.
