Penn State Upsets Michigan in 100 Tweets

The Penn State Twittersphere is a always a fun place, but it’s even more fun when Penn State pulls off a big upset like it did on Saturday. If you follow enough Penn State people, your timeline was filled with pure jubilation — and if you’ll indulge me in just a little bit of shameless self-promotion — let’s relive Penn State’s improbable upset over Michigan with these 100 tweets.

Pre-game was filled with hope and lots of white.

The game was action packed from the beginning.

Penn Staters were feeling pretty good at this point, but not necessarily confident. Especially after the second half started…

And then things really went south…

But we all know what happens next.

And then things got really crazy.

Pure jubilation.

Players reacted quickly. As you can guess, they were just as happy as the fans.

This one is the heavy favorite for tweet of the night.

Sad Michigan fans are the best kind.

The morning after a big win is always the best.
