EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Even though the Syracuse University football team kicked off their season in New Jersey, it did not stop fans from making the trip.
Crowds of Orange fans packed the parking lot outside of MetLife Stadium before Syracuse took on Penn State. According to the fans, they are excited for the upcoming season.
"We just love it, they came last year also, so we have a good time. Like tailgating a little here and there," said Norma Wood, a Syracuse University fan.
"One of my wife's cousins actually went to Penn State, so uh we're a split squad now. During game time it's going to get a little tough there," joked Josh Domack, another fan.
"I think their gonna win because I am a huge Syracuse fan, and I've been watching them for awhile, so I feel like they have a chance to win this game,' hoped Danny Laible, a fan. "I've been waiting for this game for awhile, so it's really exciting to come to MetLife Stadium and watch them play."
Kickoff was at 3:30 p.m.
