Twitter: Your top tweets and plays from Week 9

Week 9 of the college football season was filled with a little bit of everything. We had upsets, blowouts and plenty of top plays. Minnesota had a memorable 34-23 upset victory over Nebraska, making the Gophers bowl eligible. Iowa edged out Northwestern in overtime, while both Michigan State and Ohio State cruised to blowout wins over Illinois and Penn State, respectively.

Through nine weeks, Ohio State remains the only unbeaten team in the conference. With that said, let’s dig deep into the twitterverse and pull the best plays and tweets from athletes, coaches and reporters around the Big Ten.
