South Carolina came out firing on all cylinders this afternoon against Florida, but a few missed penalties allowed the Gators to take control of the game. As a result, Will Muschamp expressed his frustration with the officials.

Muschamp led the Gamecocks to an upset win over the Georgia Bulldogs last weekend. His team appeared to be on the verge of pulling off another shocking victory until they allowed a fourth-quarter surge to the Gators.

One of the biggest plays in the game came when Kyle Trask hit Kyle Pitts for a touchdown. The replay shows that Pitts was wide open because his teammate set a screen on South Carolina's cornerback.

Pick plays are not allowed by rule, which means the referees should've thrown a flag. Instead, the officiating crew allowed the play on the field stand.

Following the play, Muschamp chewed out the officials.

Here's footage of Muschamp yelling at the officials for not calling offensive pass interference:

Earlier in this game, the Gators also got away with a holding penalty that would have negated a long touchdown run from Dameon Pierce.

Muschamp and the Gamecocks will have to put this loss to the Gators behind them.

Next Saturday, South Carolina faces Tennessee on the road.
