A family in Charlotte said Santa had a big surprise for their son on Christmas morning.

Owen Dahl is going see the Syracuse Orange play in the Camping World Bowl in Orlando, Florida. He cried tears of joy.

Owen's mom Amy said the ticket was his final present. "I was really really surprised," Owen told CNY Central over FaceTime. "After that I was looking through the stockings and I felt a piece of paper on my Dad's stockins and it was another ticket to the game so he can go!"

Amy and her husband Steve are from Cicero and Central Square respectively. They moved their family down to North Carolina back in 2013. Amy said Owen continues to rep the Orange.

"He's never wavered," said Amy. "Of course living down here in the Tar Heel state everybody's North Carolina or Duke, he's always been a Syracuse fan."

Owen said he and his dad are waking up at 4 a.m. Friday before making the seven hour drive to Orlando.

The Orange play West Virginia. Kickoff is at 5:15 p.m. Friday.
