Tennessee fans rioted in the final minute of the Volunteers' 31-26 loss to the Ole Miss Rebels on Saturday night in Knoxville, Tenn. after an unfavorable call.

Tennessee had a fourth-and-24 at its own 36 with under a minute left. Hendon Hooker completed a pass to Jacob Warren for 23 yards. Warren was ruled down short of the first-down marker. After the officials measured and confirmed Warren was short, Vols fans threw a fit. They began throwing stuff onto the field, causing a delay.

It got so bad that cheerleaders had to run off the field for safety from the flying objects:

Eventually the game resumed, and Ole Miss went three-and-out and punted. Tennessee got the ball down to the Ole Miss 21, but the Volunteers stalled and lost the game.

Not only did the Volunteers lose, but their fans displayed embarrassing behavior, all while getting beat by the former coach.
