The last time a Philadelphia sports team won a major championship, the United States was in a recession, former President George W. Bush signed a $700 billion bailout bill and O.J. Simpson was found guilty of charges of kidnapping and armed robbery.

Now, more than 10 years later, hundreds of Pitt students took to the streets to celebrate the Eagles’ 41-33 win over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.

Pitt police cited two students for disorderly conduct in connection to the celebrations. Pitt spokesperson Joe Miksch said there was no damage.
