Week 3 of the college football season wasn’t the kindest to the Big Ten, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t plenty of outstanding plays.

With that said, it’s time to go back in time and take a look at the top plays and twitter reactions from this past weekend.

Here is a look around the Big Ten’s third week of action.
