Did you watch the CFP Championship this past Monday?
We did! And also compiled geolocated, sentiment-scored tweets throughout the Ohio State Buckeyes vs. Oregon Ducks second half of the game, into this Tableau data visualization.
Check out the viz below, from one of our data wizards, Mario Carloni.
The third quarter began with an interception by Oregon at 10:50pm EST, followed by the fast 70-yard reception to Byron Marshall from Mariota for a touchdown. Then, at 11:06pm EST, OSU had another turnover which led to another field goal for Oregon, making it a 1-point game, 21-20 Ohio.
In our data visualization of the tweets just prior to the 3rd and 4th quarters of the Championship game, we can see the Oregon fans sentiment exploding, as Oregon made their dramatic push to even up the score.
Unfortunately from here, for Oregon fans, the rest of the game was all Ohio State. And you can notice their waning sentiment in the “Fanthusiasm Over Time” section of the data viz below.
