UMass asking students to celebrate Super Bowl safely, responsibly

Hampshire County

The New England Patriots will be playing The Los Angeles rams Sunday night in Super Bowl LIII.

UMass has had problems in the past with clebrations getting out of control on campus,regardless of who wins or loses. On Sunday night, they’re asking for students to be responsible.

Last year’s Super Bowl Loss was followed by a big disturbance on campus at UMass in Amherst.

Police arrested seven UMass students after a crowd estimated at 2,000 gathered at the Southwest Dorm complex following the Patriots loss to the Eagles.

Twelve people were sent to hospitals for head injuries, lacerations, and alcohol intoxication. 

A similar situation took place after the Patriots won Super Bowl LI.

However, no injuries or arrests took place after the Red Sox World Series win in October.
