As you can imagine, the Northwestern vs. Penn State football game this past weekend brought the camaraderie to a new level, and the two accounts agreed to a bet: Loser of the game has to change their Twitter avatar for a week to something of the winner’s choosing.

As you know by now, Penn State came from behind and beat Northwestern in exciting fashion. For the entire week, @notdrovell has forced some hilarious avatars on @darrenrovell:
