For the fans who couldn't make it down to the Bronx to watch the game, Drumlins Country Club hosted the official watch party. A lively group spent the afternoon cheering on the Orange. And while the fans liked basically everything about this win, our Candace Hopkins has more on what they say was the best part.

DEWITT, N.Y. -- A little bit of snow outside couldn't keep these enthusiastic orange fans cooped up at home Saturday.

"It's the game that we've all been waiting for, all the hype, the whole nine yards," said SU employee and fan Emily Yakawiak.

A dedicated few gathered here at Drumlins for wings, beer and most importantly, an Orange win.

"People were really motivated, people were excited obviously because we were winning the entire the game and here we go, we're gonna be taking home the trophy," said SU alumni Melinda Reiner.

And while earning the trophy is certainly exciting, these fans said the best part of this game was beating their formal rival.

"Oh it's so much fun, they're the mountaineers, they were Big East, they're not but they were and they've always been a rivalry for Syracuse University, so how can you not be engaged in this game?" said Yakawiak.

In the end the excitement of SU's second bowl win left little more to say except....

"Go ‘Cuse, they won, amen," said Yakawiak.
