However, sometimes the situation can get out of hand as young individuals lose their calm and commit to disorderly conduct amidst the game. The same happened during the matchup between the Tennessee Volunteers and Ole Miss Rebels on Saturday.

However, the outrage was not regarding the trash talk among the players. It was regarding Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin. Kiffin adorns his resume as the former head coach of Tennessee Volunteers for 12 seasons.

Ole Miss snatched the victory from Tennessee Volunteers

This was Kiffin’s homecoming game where, after sealing a victory against his former team, he was pelted with golf balls, plastic bottles and other kinds of trash, littering the field. Tennessee fans threw all sorts of trash to the Ole Miss bench after a late fourth-down call went against them, leading to a 31-26 win for the opponents.

Tennessee was on the move to make a game-winning drive in the last moments of the game when the referees made a bad call returning the ball to the Ole Miss side with just 54 seconds to go. The home fans got even more infuriated after the Rebels went down with a myriad of injuries and cramps which the Volunteers thought they were faking.

Tennessee used all their three timeouts when Ole Miss was in control of the ball, forcing them to punt. QB Hendon Hooker got injured after two shots in the end zone. Joe Milton came in to replace Hooker, ending the game with a doomed scramble.
