Celebrants yell at passing cars at the corner of 12th Street and North Avenue after the Broncos’ 23-10 victory against the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50. About 100 people stood on corners at the intersection waving flags and cheering as drivers honked their horns and flew team flags from their cars.

Reveling in Denver victory

Fans pack bars, students celebrate on CMU campus after Super Bowl

Nash Doughman was pretending to fly across the Colorado Mesa University campus Sunday night. He stretched out his arms as he sped along the sidewalk, only stopping to lift up a friend in an embrace.
After the Denver Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers 24-10 in Super Bowl 50, taking home the third Lombardi Trophy in franchise history, Doughman could only yell.
As the 21-year-old sophomore passed his fellow students, he yelled “Go Broncos.”
As fireworks echoed, car horns blared and a pair of students sounded vuvuzelas from dormitory balconies, he yelled “Go Broncos.”
As he walked by three Grand Junction Police Department officers patrolling the campus on foot, he yelled “Go Broncos.”
