A cheering crowd of 3,000 flooded to Southwest Residential Area at the University of Massachusetts after the New England Patriots won Super Bowl LIII 13-3 against the Los Angeles Rams.

No arrests were made following the game, according to Edward Blaguszewski, executive director of strategic communications for UMass News and Media Relations. One head injury and two hand injuries were reported.

The UMass Police Department said the crowd was “exuberant and primarily peaceful,” according to a press release from Blaguszewski.

People began to gather in Southwest in front of Berkshire Dining Commons after the game ended at 10:04 p.m. UMPD officers lined the perimeter of the crowd, intervening when people attempted to climb trees and structures. The crowd peacefully dispersed before 11 p.m., according to Blaguszewski.

This is the third Super Bowl in a row that the Patriots have played in. Compared to the past two years, it was a calm crowd. Following the Patriots’ 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in 2018, UMPD made six arrests and reported 12 medical transportations. Six residence halls on campus also reported $2,685 in property damages after Super Bowl LII.

    Zoomass forever!!

    UMPD is giving in as they should and probably were told to avoid arrests so Umass doesn’t look as bad. Remember we pay their salaries with our tuition and fees, UMPD and umass administration should be deferential to their bosses.
