The 2021 college football season has been full of surprises, and Week 11 continued that trend as many games caused a lot of discussions.
No. 4 Ohio State dominated No. 7 Michigan State, No. 5 Cincinnati continued its undefeated campaign with a win over SMU, and Nebraska suffered more heartbreak against No. 15 Wisconsin. The action on the field provided entertainment for viewers, but the trolls on the internet added to it with their timely commentary.
Nobody held back their playful jabs, and there was quite a bit of roasting after the game.
Here are some of the best trolls from this weekend in college football.
Missouri 24, Florida 23
It came down to the final play in the SEC showdown between Missouri and Florida on Saturday. Tigers coach Eli Drinkwitz opted to go for two and the victory with quarterback Connor Bazelak throwing the winning two-point conversion to Daniel Parker Jr. for the upset.
Drinkwitz and the team's Twitter account credited "The Force" being on their side throughout the game, a subtle barb at Florida's Dan Mullen for wearing a Darth Vader costume after beating Missouri last year.

No. 24 Utah 38, No.4 Oregon 7
By the time Oregon's first, and only, score came in the third quarter, the damage was already done. The Utes' decisive win likely crushed the Ducks' College Football Playoff hopes, and the celebration spilled into the social world.
38-7 is good, right?— University of Utah (@UUtah) November 21, 2021
No. 5 Cincinnati 48, SMU 14
The Bearcats moved to 11-0 today after handling the Mustangs at home thanks to a three-touchdown game from quarterback Desmond Ridder. The team's social media squad provided a southern-inspired celebration at SMU's expense postgame.
YEEEEEE HAW 🤠@GoBearcatsFB opened up a 48-0 lead on its way to a Senior Day romp, holding the nation's #6 offense to 199 yards and 14 points. pic.twitter.com/chPHQQew8W— Cincinnati Bearcats (@GoBEARCATS) November 21, 2021
UCF 49, UConn 17
The Civil ConFLiCT trophy has made its return. UCF announced its revival and UConn threw some shade ahead of the game, but the Knights had the last laugh.
Was this made at the same place that did your National Championship trophy? https://t.co/QPGH5iML8q— UConn Football (@UConnFootball) November 20, 2021

Clemson 48, No. 10 Wake Forest 27
Dabo Swinney and the Clemson Tigers looked like the dominant team from yesteryear, winning against Wake Forest, a top-10 team. The Clemson defense hounded Demon Deacons quarterback Sam Hartman so much that the Tigers' social media team couldn't keep up.
How many sacks do we have today? We've lost count. pic.twitter.com/uDTHcIEGCt— Clemson Football (@ClemsonFB) November 20, 2021
Clemson finished the game with seven sacks, and a Swinney GIF perfectly summed up the day for his club.

West Virginia 31, Texas 23
West Virginia eliminated the Texas Longhorns from bowl consideration in what has been an underwhelming first season under Steve Sarkisian. Mountaineers receiver Bryce Ford-Wheaton flexed with the infamous "Horns Down" picture of former WVU player David Sills V on Twitter, which got a co-sign from Sills himself.

No. 4 Ohio State 56, No. 7 Michigan State 7
The biggest game of the early afternoon schedule featured the Spartans traveling to Ohio to face the Buckeyes. Michigan State kept up this season's comic book cover tradition ahead of the game, foreshadowing a stranglehold against their Big Ten rival.

The comic didn't represent the contest, as the Buckeyes rolled to a 56-7 win, establishing a 49-0 lead by the half. The team's Twitter account summarized the first two quarters succinctly.

Los Angeles Lakers forward and loyal Buckeyes fan LeBron James tagged Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green, a Michigan State alum, on Twitter after the damage was done.
Can somebody check in on my brother @Money23Green please! Haven't heard from him today. 🤣🤣🤣. #GoBuckeyes🌰 OH...... @OhioStateFB— LeBron James (@KingJames) November 20, 2021
