EL PASO — The 80th Annual Sun Bowl game was a near sellout with thousands of fans rooting for Virginia Tech and UCLA.
Even though UCLA did get the win, fans still enjoyed the experience.
"At the end of the day we're having a great time," said Virgina Tech fan Robert Trujillo.
Fans spent the day enjoying the game day festivities started early at the Sky Party a top the Sun Bowl Drive parking garage.
Most were impressed with El Paso's mild weather and doing a little trash-talking.
"We know we're going to win the game today so we're celebrating already," said Andrew Chang, wearing his Virginia Tech gear.
Inside the stadium fans were delighted by the Team Fastrax as the dove from the sky into the Sun Bowl stadium.
The game was close up to halftime but UCLA pulled away in the second half.
"It's UCLA what else do you expect," said Bert Gonzales from Los Angeles.
