Huge games are ripe for strong Twitter reaction, and the 21st-ranked BYU Cougars’ victory over the ninth-ranked Baylor Bears certainly fit that bill.
Here is some of the immediate reaction following the final whistle of what was a back-and-forth double overtime battle.

After @BYUfootball K @JakeOldroyd39 missed two game-winning field goals (end of regulation & first OT) @jarenhall3 knelt with him while @BYU D held Baylor to seal the win in 2nd OT, then Hall hugged his emotional teammate. @Deseret @drewjay pic.twitter.com/rqMDiaEujH— Tad Walch (@Tad_Walch) September 11, 2022
Tonight marks BYU's first home win over a top-10 team since upsetting No. 1 Miami 28-21 in 1990, and third all-time (No. 4 Air Force 28-21 1985).— BYU Game Notes (@BYUGameNotes) September 11, 2022
Great win for the Cougs. I’m thinking 11-1 and NY6 for BYU is going to happen this year.— Jeremy Olsen (@JeremyOlsen41) September 11, 2022
Great chance both in-state schools are playing in a NY6. That would be crazy!

BYU wouldn’t have even had a chance to make it to overtime without your two field goals earlier in the game.
You’ve won games for your team before. Tonight, it was their turn to win one for you.

No Puka Nacua or Baylor Romney and BYU showed HUGE HEART!— Hans Olsen (@975Hans) September 11, 2022
Oregon looks VERY beatable and Notre Dame doesn't look to be the team some thought.
BYU is Resilient, deep, has great leaders, heart, excellent coaching.
This team is special.
Baylor was a great team.
