That’s another Bison… tweet?
Bill Snyder Family Stadium was not the only thing blown up by Bison nation on Friday night. No, Bison nation also blew up the popular social networking site Twitter.
The much-anticipated football game versus the Kansas State Wildcats, in the “little apple” Manhattan, Kan., resulted in the biggest win in Bison football history and surge of tweets referring to NDSU.
The tweets published were from not only loyal members of the herd, but also fans of the opposing team and national sports analysts from some of the top sports television networks in the country.
By the time the clock hit zero in the last quarter of the game, it was hard to come across a tweet that did not have any correlation to the shocking win over the back-to-back Big-12 champions.
NDSU was trending.
If America did not know who the Bison were before Aug. 30, they do now.
