Twitter reacts to Old Dominion taking down No. 13 Virginia Tech

Virginia Tech came into Week 4 as the No. 13-ranked team in the nation and was nearly a four-touchdown favorite to beat Old Dominion.

Then the two teams hit the field, where pandemonium took over.

The Monarchs took every shot the Hokies had to give them, and then they countered. The game was knotted up at 14-14 at the half. During a see-saw second half, during which they scored five touchdowns, including the following gem, Old Dominion secured the huge win.

It was easily the biggest upset in college football so far this season — not to mention the biggest upset by an FBS team over an ACC opponent in the last 40 seasons.

For Virginia Tech, the agony of losing wasn’t the only tough pill to swallow, as starting quarterback Josh Jackson suffered what appeared to be a serious ankle injury and had to be carted into the locker room in the fourth quarter.

Twitter users everywhere chimed in on this monumental achievement.



And for anyone wondering why Old Dominion was playing the No. 13 team in the nation to begin with, here’s an interesting nugget.


This game was just nuts. It’s what’s so great about college football. Every year, we can count on at least one monumental upset to completely rock the rankings. This one might just take the cake.
