Things got testy between Florida and Vanderbilt.
Following a vicious Florida hit that resulted in a targeting penalty, Gators’ head coach Dan Mullen got into a shouting match with Vanderbilt head coach Derek Mason. Trailing at the time, Florida defensive coordinator Todd Grantham shared some words with Mason. Something said during the altercation enraged Mullen.
The two sides did the “hold me back” move before it escalated even further. Both benches cleared and unsportsmanlike conduct penalties were thrown on each side, forcing Florida’s Vosean Joseph out of the game.

It will be interesting to see if Greg Sankey or Steve Shaw hand down any other punishment following the game. Vanderbilt travels to Lexington next Saturday night to take on the Kentucky Wildcats.
