Ohio State's come-from-behind victory sparks reaction on social media

Penn State Nittany Lions, Ohio State Buckeyes

The Penn State Nittany Lions led Ohio State by 18 points on two separate occasions on Saturday, putting themselves in position to capture yet another victory and continue their undefeated run.

But J.T. Barrett put the Buckeyes on his back down the stretch, leading the team to three consecutive touchdown drives in the fourth quarter -- including a 16-yard pass to Marcus Baugh with 1:48 to play that turned out to be the game-winning score.

The victory sent shockwaves through the sports community, as athletes, celebrities and Ohio State alum took to Twitter to show the Buckeyes love.

Barrett completed 33 of 39 passes for 328 yards, four touchdowns and zero interceptions in the win. He also rushed for another 95 yards. 

The No. 2 Nittany Lions went down on a day that saw a few top-ranked teams take a tumble. No. 4 TCU had its first loss of the season, to Iowa State, while No. 16 Michigan State went down to Northwestern and No. 17 South Florida suffered its first loss, to Houston.
