Florida's McArthur Burnett Gives Middle Finger to Tennessee Fans After Win

Florida stunned Tennessee with a last-second Hail Mary to solidify a 26-20 victory on Saturday. In the heat of the moment, Gators players taunted Volunteers fans at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

A Facebook video posted by Chandler Cox captured at least one Tennessee fan directing a middle finger at Florida's sideline. Freshman defensive back McArthur Burnett reciprocated the gesture, and sophomore linebacker Vosean Joseph responded with the Gator Chomp. Someone appeared to throw a bottle at Joseph, who ducked out of the way.

Joseph also tweeted a celebratory jab at Vols fans after the game, which may reference a video where someone appeared to urinate on Tim Tebow’s Heisman Trophy statue.

College football stadiums aren't exactly known for level-headed exchanges of ideas, but tensions run especially high when an SEC rivalry matchup ends in dramatic fashion.
