No arrests were made Sunday night after thousands of University of New Hampshire students filled downtown Durham to celebrate the New England Patriots’ Super Bowl victory.

Durham Town Administrator Todd Selig said students were well-behaved.

The celebration broke up after about an hour.

Selig says the town, local police, and UNH officials had been planning their response to the game over the last two weeks, hoping to keep things under control.

After the Red Sox won the World Series in 2013, a riot broke out in Durham and several UNH students were arrested for damaging vehicles and throwing bottles at police.
