Social media reacts to the Big Ten Championship Game

It was a Big Ten Championship Game that will go down as one of the best ever, and the reaction to Penn State’s 38-31 victory over Wisconsin from onlookers, alumni and others on social media matched the epic contest on the field.

Wisconsin linebacker TJ Watt showed out again, and his older brother and current Houston Texan JJ made it known in the first half.

Current Big Ten Network analyst and former Penn State football player Anthony “Spice” Adams could barely contain himself on the sideline.

***

Former Badger running back Melvin Gordon showed support for his heir apparent at the position, Corey Clement.

***

As the momentum shifted to Penn State, former players like Adam Taliaferro started to feel it.

***

As Penn State wrapped up their first Big Ten Championship Game victory, former Nittany Lions running back Franco Harris – one of the sport’s all-time greats – was fired up.

***

Pat Fitzgerald, a fellow Big Ten coach with no horse in the race, offered his congratulations as well.

And if you’re a Wisconsin fan who’s feeling down, former Wisconsin and current Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Travis Frederick had some words of encouragement.
