Marquette v. Madison basketball game starts with Twitter war

The game that divides the state: Marquette v. UW-Madison, started with a Twitter war early Saturday morning. 

Marquette University tweeted "Good morning to everyone except UWMadison"  at 8:15 a.m.

UW-Madison responded to the shade with a picture of Jacques Marquette wearing Badgers attire and the caption, 'Did you dress up for us today?'

The basketball game started at 4 p.m. and while some people are busy rooting for their team, others were just excited about the drama between schools.
