Against all odds...we made it.
Instead of packing into the ‘Shoe, tailgating in the parking lot or waiting in line at Out R’ Inn (the only bar worth waiting in line for imo) on a crisp, fall Saturday afternoon, the majority of Ohio State fans (hopefully) will take their game-day watching talents to their own living rooms. While Game Day on Twitter is always a glorious place to be, it means just a little bit more this year, as it’s the one and only place that fans can still yell, cheer and swear together safely in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Best part about an empty Ohio Stadium: there are 105,000 more people on Twitter melting down with each Nebraska big play. I love you #BuckeyeTwitter— Dave Holmes (@DaveHolmesTV) October 24, 2020
We’re back with our Game Day Twitter round up series, where we gather all of the best reactions, gifs, sarcasm, jokes, smack talk and the rest of today’s best tweets across the college football Twitterverse.
Here. We. Go.
Welcome back, Big Ten football.
Garrett Wilson first round!!!— Jared Sullinger Sr. (@Jared_Sully0) October 24, 2020
I’m gonna miss exclaiming “and he’s only a freshman!”

brb becoming vegan— Matt Brown (@MattBrownEP) October 24, 2020
Despite what the critics have been saying, a vegetarian diet has not made Justin Fields bad at football. Also, Garrett Wilson in the slot is deadly.
A well-deserved sack and celebration for Haskell Garrett, playing today just two months after being shot in the face pic.twitter.com/AESigWyTJb— Buckeye Sports Bulletin (@Buckeye_Sports) October 24, 2020
Garrett will forever have the perfect “fun fact” to use in icebreakers.
WR depth is a question if not a concern for Ohio State, but in Olave and Wilson, the Buckeyes have a duo that is really, really special.— Bill Rabinowitz (@brdispatch) October 24, 2020
Why would you purposefully say something so incorrect?
Please help my son the Ohio State defense he is very sick— Ryan Ginn (@rmginn) October 24, 2020
I really thought that the defense would be okay without Young, Okudah, Arnette and Fuller but our defense is not, in fact, okay without Young, Okudah, Arnette and Fuller.
Ohio State’s running backs so far today:— Eleven Warriors (@11W) October 24, 2020
10 carries for 20 yards.
The best running back on the team is Justin Fields.— Ari Wasserman (@AriWasserman) October 24, 2020
I really thought that the run game would be okay without J.K. Dobbins but our run game is not, in fact, okay without J.K. Dobbins.
Justin Fields will throw an incomplete pass at some point this season. Mark my words.— Dave Holmes (@DaveHolmesTV) October 24, 2020
Big if true.
Justin Fields is now 10-for-10, matching the greatest passing day in Ohio State history, Tate Martell's 2018 Rutgers game.— Tom Orr (@TomOrr4) October 24, 2020
Justin Fields: Finally as good as Tate Martell.

I know we’ve been ragging on the run game but we mustn’t forget this man endured an ACHILLES injury in the spring.
While we roll into halftime, let’s check in on SEC Twitter...
the Georgia coaching staff picked Jake Fromm over Justin Fields— Trey (@al_25_) October 24, 2020
Georgia fans gotta be so sick everyday watching homegrown talents in Trevor Lawrence & Justin Fields throwing dimes.— kev (@JustKevooo) October 24, 2020
Speaking of Trevor Lawrence, the “best team in the country” is having a similar day.
lol @ the idea of worrying about osu football when justin fields is still the QB— johnny (@johnny11w) October 24, 2020
I have been worrying about Ohio State football since my parents brought me home from the hospital.
But, @johnny11w, you have a point.
Jonathon Cooper knocked the ball loose and Sevyn Banks took it all the way for six.— Eleven Warriors (@11W) October 24, 2020
Let’s see what we have here...
6 for Sevyn— Jeff Rapp (@RappUp) October 24, 2020
Sevyn for syx.— Tony Gerdeman (@TonyGerdeman) October 24, 2020
Not 5, not 6, but Sevyn— Kevin Noon (@Kevin_Noon) October 24, 2020
Scoop and score for Sevyn points. pic.twitter.com/RxnsShgIOG— Bucknuts (@Bucknuts247) October 24, 2020
Alright that’s enough.
Nebraska, down 24 points (3 scores) kicks a field goal on 4th-and-goal from the 4.— Tom Orr (@TomOrr4) October 24, 2020
That cuts their deficit to 21 points (3 scores).
Choices are being made here, friends.
I swear on my life that I could coach a college football team.

The problem with Ohio State vs. the rest of the Big Ten is that OSU's backups do things that nobody else's starters can do https://t.co/J3utgI8jkE— Alex Kirshner (@alex_kirshner) October 24, 2020
No Backups Just More Starters™
