The Eastern Michigan football team's social media account celebrated the Eagles' upset win over Arizona State football on Saturday night by bringing out Herm Edwards' "You play to win the game" quote in a graphic on Twitter after EMU's 30-21 win over ASU in Tempe.

"The only quote to describe tonight," it wrote.

Twitter reacted to the jab at the ASU coach and program after Eastern Michigan became the first MAC team to beat a Pac-12 team in a college football regular season game.

It's the second straight week that the quote has been used in a tweet by the opposition's social media team.

The Oklahoma State Football Twitter account tweeted "You play. To Win. The game." after Oklahoma State beat Arizona State 34-17.
