On Saturday night in Tempe, the Arizona State Sun Devils (3-3, 2-1 Pac-12) pulled off a near-unbelievable upset of the No. 5 Washington Huskies (6-1, 3-1) by a final score of 13-7.
The scene in the stands and on the field following the final whistle was chaotic, and so was the atmosphere on social media as the upset became a reality.
Let’s take a look back at Twitter following ASU’s first victory over a top-5 team in 21 years.
It all began with ASU’s key fourth-down conversion.
From then on, chaos, from every national media outlet and college football personality in the country. It began with our very own Josiah Destin’s account of ASU fans storming the field:
Then came the national analysts.
