Saturday was a big day for college football, and many Pittsburgh Steelers took to social media to weigh in on victories, upsets, and big plays in the NCAA. Since Week 11 is a bye week for the Steelers, players could devote more energy to watching college football.

Running back Le'Veon Bell, who is currently on IR, played for the ninth-ranked Michigan Spartans and watched his team beat third-ranked Ohio State 17-14.

He also pointed out that the Spartans won with their backup quarterback.

Before his team lost, Ryan Shazier retweeted a picture of Lebron James supporting Ohio State, Shazier's former school.

Cornerback Brandon Boykin went down to Georgia to cheer on the Bulldogs, who beat the Georgia Southern Eagles 17-23.

Linebacker Arthur Moats visited James Madison University and presented his school with a generous gift. JMU ended up beating Villanova 38-29.
