The largest crowd to ever watch a game at Beaver Stadium (110,823 fans) saw a fearsome, White Out-infused beat down of Michigan, the Big Ten's fourth place team.

Penn State didn't forget last year's awful, injury-plagued, 39-point loss in Ann Arbor. And neither did Nittany Lion fans, as they took to Twitter to celebrate Saturday night. Oh, and the players, coaches and lettermen had plenty to say and share, too, following the 42-13 win over Michigan.

Players

No victory is complete without safety Marcus Allen posting his usual post-game dance celebration from the locker room. This week's edition was particularly wild. And catch punter Blake Gillikin throwing some master trolling shade at Wolverines kicker Quinn Nordin, who produced one of the dorkiest recruiting commitment videos in history and then subsequently flipped to Michigan after having a weird sleepover with Jim Harbaugh. Anyway, Nordin missed a PAT on Saturday night.

Coaches

RB coach Charles Huff had a time on Twitter following the victory. First, he took on wrestling legend "Nature Boy" Ric Flair, and then he clapped back at some guy named Anthony Herron (???), who said ridiculous stuff about the Penn State-Michigan game on Colin Cowherd's radio/tv schlockfest earlier in the week.

Lettermen

Anthony "Spice" Adams provided his usual point-total enthusiasm, and former RB Larry Johnson almost spilled his beer (apparently, a Busch?!) on Saquon Barkley's ridiculous first touchdown run. Ki-Jana Carter, who served as College GameDay guest picker, got a great post-game photo with Barkley.

Also, Michigan Man Lavert Hill was so upset -- so mad, if you will -- about the thrashing that he flipped the bird to Penn State fans after the game.

All The Rest

No. 2 Penn State (7-0) next travels to Columbus for a fistfight against the Ohio State Buckeyes. The Saturday afternoon game (3:30 ET) will air on FOX.
