“It’s a party, it’s a party, it’s a party” hardly describes the mood in the Big Blue Nation right now.

Here’s a quick roundup of the reactions you need to see, which we’ll update throughout the day.

What a great win for BBN and Mark Stoops. Fantastic performance to break the streak. Getting backups snaps for players at Tenn just feels good.

Darian Kinnard lifting logs is its own kind of energy right now.
