Social media rarely disappoints in Baylor games, and after each win, I try to memorialize some of the best Tweets here on ODB for all to see. The idea here isn't to get a holistic picture of the game, but rather identify those tweets that were particularly funny, poignant, or memorable for whatever reason.
Let's get right to it. Submit your own favorites in the comments by snagging the embed code from Twitter and just pasting it into the text box.

Oftentimes, I'll try to do this chronologically to tell the story of the game through tweets. Not tonight. Tonight, I'm starting with what was a transcendent Twitter event for a few minutes after these guys lost their minds trying to figure out how SMU didn't score any points to end the first half.
Twitter had a lot of fun with them, as you might expect.

There are PLENTY more, but I'll spare you. Back to the game:
Jarrett Stidham with a heck of a toss. He may end up being Baylor's best QB yet. True freshman is the best recruit Briles has ever had.— David Ubben (@davidubben) September 5, 2015
Baylor should be fine the rest of the night so long as the team account avoids tweeting a gun emoji pointed at a horse emoji.— David Ubben (@davidubben) September 5, 2015
Ubben was on fire. I feel like he's really finding his Twitter voice. Speaking of that Stidham toss:

That's REAL nice.

Baylor packaged play: guard pull power inside run but QB sees safety down so he throws to WR 1-on-1 https://t.co/LK24U8vZRp— Chris B. Brown (@smartfootball) September 5, 2015
Dude is wicked smaht.

This was early, before the Troubling Times in the second quarter.

Just going to throw that out there...
12th time Baylor has scored 50 in a game since start of 2013, most in FBS— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) September 5, 2015
you know smu has been playing really well yet Baylor is up 3 TDs. Feels like that's how damn near every Baylor game goes.— stringsays (@stringsays) September 5, 2015
This was after the Troubling Times passed and Baylor became Baylor again.

So was this.
Baylor's Corey Coleman was issued a speeding ticket during that 50+ yard TD catch and run via helicopter traffic enforcement.— Mike Taddow (@taddmike) September 5, 2015
And this. (MY FAVORITE OF THE NIGHT).
Baylor set a school record with 10.48 yards per play — 723 yards on 69 plays. #SicSMU— Baylor Football (@BUFootball) September 5, 2015
And finally this. I didn't actually realize this happened at the time, but it makes sense when you consider we ran 6 plays in the second quarter. 6.
UPDATE: I'm adding this because it's hilarious.
