Dan Mullen had quite a Saturday night.
The Florida Gators head coach led his team to a dominant victory over Missouri at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville, Fla. The Gators thumped the Tigers, 41-17, to improve to 3-1 on the season. Missouri, meanwhile, dropped to 2-3.
There was an ugly sequence at the end of the half. Missouri had a late hit on Florida quarterback Kyle Trask, which sparked an all-out brawl between the two teams. Three players were ejected from the game and Mullen had a bizarre moment heading into the locker room.
Florida’s head coach, after feuding with his opponent, ran in and out of the tunnel while pumping up the crowd like a professional wrestler.
It was an odd scene.
SEC Network says Dan Mullen told them he was trying to get his team off the field. He went after a ref on the field, according to the tape. And then he did this after the field was cleared. pic.twitter.com/PPw1t8kJZy

Things got even weirder in the post-game press conference.
Mullen showed up in costume – it is Halloween, after all – and he was rocking an appropriate outfit. The Florida Gators’ head coach showed up as Darth Vader.

What a night for Mullen and the Gators.
It could be a costly one, though. It would not be surprising if Florida’s head coach faces a fine from the SEC for his halftime behavior.
