Fans were in good spirits, hoping to see their team win on such a beautiful day in El Paso.
"Georgia Tech at heart! Georgia Tech fan always and I always will be a Georgia fan, and I love it baby! I'm glad to see them here in El Paso, Texas," one man said.
The Utah fans were showing just as much love in the stands, holding up the "U" for Utah!
Tonight the game's over, but fans will be left with memories of a lifetime.
