After getting to Dallas, the Coxes were on stand-by and finally got booked on a straight flight to Orange County.

"It was unbelievable," said Chan. "It was a 16-hour day and when we got here, our luggage had been left in Dallas. A nightmare, but worth it."

"Watching the Noles in the BCS Championship game was a night to remember forever," added Laura.

"The game was crazy and a lot of fun," agreed Caitie. "We were originally told they couldn't get us here but we made it. Everyone was shocked when we won. Auburn has pulled off a few miracles. But we did it. Every single fan stayed and didn't move from their seats. Everyone was like, did we really win? It was intense sitting on the borderline with FSU fans to our right and Auburn to our left. Both sides were going crazy and everyone was standing."

Caitie said she was not disappointed to not be cheering during this momentous event.  

"I have been going to FSU games with my family for as long as I can remember. I cheered at FSU for four years, but it takes its toll on your body. And when you're on the field you don't see everything, but in the stands you do.”
