It wasn't a "Rose Bowl" victory in Pasadena last night for Notre Dame.
But it certainly looked like it.
The Irish had a big on field celebration, one that wasn't overdone but certainly showed the excitement of the players as Notre Dame defeated UCLA 20-6 for its first win of the season.
Charlie Weis kindly declined an on the field interview at first, stating he wanted to enjoy the moment of seeing his players celebrate.
Its something the Irish haven't done since November 18, 2006.
So Weis stood on the field and looked on glowingly as his players trotted around the Rose Bowl in a victory lap.
More than 25,000 Irish fans were in attendance for the game and a lot of them stuck around for the post-game festivities.
Jimmy Clausen--a California native---raised his gold Irish helmet in the air. The freshman was beaming with excitement in earning his first ever college win.
As the Irish players headed to the tunnel, a fan waved an Irish flag.
Sophomore offensive lineman Sam Young patted the flag as he left the field.
The Irish flag was finally waving proudly again.
