For these Ragin' Cajun fans, a party in Lafayette is just as good as a party in New Orleans.
Especially when it means celebrating the Cajuns first bowl berth in more than 40 years.
"Hell froze over when the Saints won the Super Bowl and I guess we're gonna get another snow storm or blizzard this year."
"When I was a kid my dad would always take me to the games and it was packed all the way to the top and we'd look over and see all the cars out in the field and its kinda gone away a little bit, now its all coming back."
"We went to all the games, all the home games to try and support, always wore the white, the red, whatever colors we needed to wear."
And that support has led to a record season for the Ragin' Cajuns. Something even the younger fans can appreciate.
"How exciting has this season been for you? Really exciting!"
And amongst all the vermillion and white we found a San Diego State fan and even he can't deny it's been the Cajuns year.
"It's been great, I'm glad they're winning."
