HONOLULU (KHON2) — Aloha Stadium was filled with wild energy as the L.A. Rams and the Dallas Cowboys battled it out on Saturday’s NFL preseason game.

Diehard Rams and Cowboys fans are like kids on Christmas morning. There was so much more to do at the stadium than at the game today. 

Fans tailgated in the parking lot, there were tons of food options from tacos to smoked meats to cotton candy. There were tents with Rams and Cowboys apparel–everything from t-shirts to keychains. 

This afternoon former Rams players were signing autographs hundreds of people were lining up for that. Earlier on Satuday, KHON2 got a chance to hang out with both Rams and Cowboys fans. Some of them flew in from the mainland to support their teams.

Local fans say it was exciting to finally see their teams in person.

This is the first NFL preseason game to be played in Hawaii in more than 40 years. 50,000 people were here, Aloha Stadium says this was a historic moment for the state.

Although the Cowboys won, everyone at the stadium had a blast. It’s no matter if you’re in the Rams house, or you’re a part of Cowboys nation.
