Twitter: Your top tweets and plays from Week 8

Week 8 of the college football season sure was a doozy. Michigan topped Indiana 63-47 in one of the most entertaining games of the college football season. Ohio State sweated out a close win over Iowa, Minnesota got a huge upset victory over Northwestern, and Wisconsin and Michigan State took care of business against Illinois and Purdue, respectively.

Through eight weeks, Ohio State is the only remaining unbeaten team in the conference. With that said, let’s take a look at the top plays and twitter reactions from this past weekend.

Check out my updated roundup as I dig deep into the twitterverse and pull the best plays and tweets from athletes, coaches and reporters around the Big Ten.
