For the sixth time in history, the Patriots are bringing the Super Bowl trophy back home to Boston!
The Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII, final score 13-3, and boy, was it a nail biter in the end.
UMass students were all about the hype as they watched the New England Patriots go head-to-head with the Los Angeles Rams Sunday night. For students who are New England natives, watching the Super Bowl while attending a Massachusetts university makes it more exciting to see their team take the field.
“It’s really exciting because everyone is a Pats fan here cause it’s like in Massachusetts, so it’s like fun to like always be with everyone that likes the Pats,” said Devon Lowney, a freshman at UMass Amherst. “And the riots are wicked fun.”
Which in the past, UMass has had problems with Super Bowl celebrations, win or lose.
The university asked students to celebrate safely and responsibly.
“We’ve been watching closely so like we’re hoping for a win, but I don’t want to make any predictions,” said Kaleigh Powers, also a freshman at the university.
Cameron Easton added, “We’re excited for the Travis Scott-half time show.”
And the excitement doesn’t end there.
“The excitement is off the charts, people are ready, people are excited,” said Connor Jahn, student. “Win or lose, people will be happy tonight.”
Boston Mayor Marty Walsh congratulated the New England team on their win and announced a Super Bowl celebration parade scheduled for Tuesday at 11 a.m.
