It’s not rare for the action surrounding a game to entertain and delight the masses. Week 1 of the Big Ten football season provided several must-see moments that had little to do with the action on the field.

Now that Week 1 of the Big Ten football season is officially in the books, it’s time to take a look back at the top plays and twitter reactions from this jam-packed week.
