LONDON - The Minnesota Vikings have already received an outpouring of support from fans in the United Kingdom, and some of those fans are a local university.

A group of about 50 St. Thomas business school students were among those on Regent Street in London for the NFL Block Party.

It's hard to get homesick studying abroad when a big part of the state you grew up in flew to London to be with you.

"It's been a great experience," said student Kyle Kriewall. "It's a once in a lifetime thing. Everyone is kind of on the same page."

The group has been in London for about a month, and they are staying until mid-December. They say every memory, like the ones made on Saturday, will last forever.

An estimated half a million people attended the NFL's Block Party.
