Have never seen Mark Richt this heated https://t.co/IS93RX7BJM

The Miami Hurricanes entered Saturday's Orange Bowl riding a two-game losing streak, and their season continued to spiral out of control in the first half against Wisconsin.

The Badgers entered halftime leading 24-14, but the real fireworks occurred on the Hurricanes sideline.

Following a Wisconsin touchdown late in the second quarter, Miami head coach Mark Richt began screaming at the refs and eventually grabbed one of them before being escorted away by an assistant coach.

It wasn't immediately clear why Richt was irate, but it may have stemmed from a potential holding penalty that wasn't called against Wisconsin.

Regardless of the call on the field, Richt was lucky to escape the heated exchange without an ejection.
