College football viewers were left rather squeamish on Friday when ESPN commentators Mike Golic Jr and Anish Shroff decided to eat Oreos dipped in mayonnaise.

Shroff and Golic Jr were commentating the 'Duke's Mayo Bowl' between South Carolina and North Carolina when things took a weird turn.

Sponsored by Duke's Mayonnaise, the game featured a number of strange gimmicks involving the creamy condiment.

And one such gimmick saw the commentators trying foods you wouldn't normally eat with mayo.

“Mike, you came up with ideas - unconventional foods that work with mayonnaise. We’re starting with what?” Shroff said during the coverage.

Golic Jr replied: “Cream-filled cookies here” and proceeded to dip his Orea in the mayo.

“Let’s take a dip,” he said. “It’s a really interesting blend of flavours! Thumbs up from me!”

Shroff also took a bite but wasn't as convinced.

“Oh Anish. We’re going to need someone up here to call this next drive," Golic said.

"He’s not doing well. I’ve seen that face before."

Unsurprisingly, viewers were left rather turned off by the bizarre live TV segment.

“Oreos and mayo sounds … absolutely disgusting," tweeted journalist Tyler Englander.

Matt James of The Ringer wrote: “There are multiple kinds of bugs that I would sooner eat than an Oreo dipped in mayo.”

While reporter Korie Dean commented: “The broadcasters just dipped Oreos in mayo and I threw up in my mouth. This is going too far.”

South Carolina coach gets mayonnaise shower

Sports fans will be accustomed to seeing coaches being drenched in Gatorade following a big victory, but South Carolina coach Shane Beamer got a mayonnaise shower after the game.

Beamer had 4 1/2 gallons of mayo cascaded over his face and down his shirt, capping the Gamecocks' celebration after their 38-21 victory over North Carolina.

"I got hammered in the back of the head from the cooler - and then came the mayo," Beamer said. 

"I may have a concussion. It was awful."

Beamer changed his shirt for the postgame news conference, but joked: "I still have mayo in my pockets."

For Beamer, it was all worth it to cap the season with a Bowl win.

Jaheim Bell had five catches for 159 yards and two touchdowns for South Carolina (7-6), which rebounded nicely after it lost 30-0 to Clemson in its regular-season finale on November 27. 

Kevin Harris added 169 yards rushing and a score.

"Everyone on offense was locked in and keyed into the details," Bell said.
