Binghamton, NY - The Eagles and the Patriots aren't the only ones facing off Sunday.

Penguins in the New York area had their very own Super Bowl.

The starting line up at Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park looked a little different - than for the Super Bowl.

For the first time, the zoo hosted a Penguin Bowl.

These little guys had their games faces on Sunday morning.

African penguins Gnat, Lucky, Dyer and Ronde - getting ready to score a touchdown.

"It's something different that you know Binghamton and the surrounding areas don't really have so it's great for us to promote what we have in a fun way," said Rachel Davenport, a public relations coordinator for Binghamton Zoo.

The fifth penguin Howard wasn't included in the lineup-- zoo officials say he was the bench warmer since his feathers were shedding.

The other birds took turns kicking the football around their own field and they had an audience watching them live on Facebook.

As you can tell they were pretty curious about everything happening around them.

Especially when you put a camera right on the field.

Even though they might have cared about playing more than winning.

Officials at the Zoo say to keep your eyes open for next year.

This year's game MVP was Ronde.

The zoo also collected more than $300 in donations during the event.
