SHREVEPORT, La. (KTBS) -

The 37th annual Advocare V100 Bowl is over, and the Arizona Wildcats take the win.

The final score was 42-19, however attendance for the game was not as good as it's been in years past.

KTBS learned 36,917 people were at the game, but the stadium can hold 48,975.

But the fans that came in to cheer for Arizona and Boston College made up for it in spirit.

Events surrounding the Advocare V100 Bowl started early Tuesday morning with the MetroPCS fan fest in the Hirsch Coliseum. Fans got a chance to cheer along with both bands.

"We're BC alumni and we go to every game," said Peter Jengo, a Boston College fan. "Home and away."

"Never miss a bowl game," added fellow Eagle fan Bill McCarthy.

Outside, game-goers braved the cooler temperatures to tailgate and mix and mingle with other fans.

Inside the stadium the teams were pretty evenly split Boston College on one side, and the University of Arizona on the other.

Even though the game ended up in the Wildcat's favor, students from each school say the experience is unforgettable.

"We're having so much fun," said Boston College student Tori Mercer.

"Yeah, it's been a lot of fun," echoed her boyfriend Jack McGinty. "It's been a great atmosphere, and everything's been a lot of fun. Definitely different, though, from up north."

"It has just been so fun," said Andrea Chacon, a junior at Arizona. "Like the parade last night and everything was awesome. And all the pregame stuff today, so fun."

A lot of people from the Shreveport and surrounding areas came in just for the game. Several said they did not care who won, as long as it was a good game.
