Twitter Reaction: Stanford 54 - Arizona 48

On a day when Stanford's touted defense struggled, Josh Nunes and the Stanford offense came to the rescue.
Nunes completed 21/34 passes for 360 yards and five total touchdowns (two passing, three rushing), and the Cardinal gained 617 yards of total offense in a dramatic 54-48 OT victory. Stanford overcame a 14-point fourth quarter deficit in the win.
Here's a look at some of the Twitter reaction from former and current Stanford players, coaches, and pundits.
