Michigan State–Michigan finish leads 2015’s most-tweeted moments

Thursday December 3rd, 2015

The remainder of the 2015 college football season promises more drama, but the largely concluded regular season has already provided plenty of exceptional moments. 

The biggest moment of the season—at least according to Twitter—was Michigan State’s spectacular last-second win at archrival Michigan. Twitter shared some of its data from the 2015 season with SI.com, including the most-discussed moments, games and teams. 

Jalen Watts–Jackson’s recovery of a blocked punt for a touchdown to give the Spartans a miracle victory was the most-tweeted moment of the year.

As exciting as the play was, that matchup still came in second on the list of most-tweeted about games, with Ohio State’s season-opening win over Virginia Tech topping the list.

With the College Football Playoff looming, Twitter provided a ranking of the fan bases lobbying hardest for their teams. The Buckeyes, again, fare well.

Twitter also shared the most popular emojis used in college football tweets this season. Unsurprisingly, the emoji football leads the pack.
