relative pronouns and complicated sentence

The following sentences have been taken from an old paper. A sentence seems to awkward to me.

"On our next break, we head into the kitchen to find beth standing over the sink, washing lettuce. Come to think of it, it's nice having her always right here where we left her. She points to a buffet of biscuits, brownies and some kind of amazing coconut squares, only two of which are left, thanks to the Blue team, which cut the line and who we think is made up of a bunch of buffaloes anyway."

1)To which 'which' and 'who' are indicating (which cut the line and who we think....)?

2) The sentence (..... and who we think is made up of a bunch of buffaloes anyway) seems awkward to me. Would anybody like to explain it?

Ahmed, buffalos are big and clumsy like the Blue Team which seemed to burst into the kitch out of nowhere, immediately consuming all that food

@Nousher Ahmed,
Cutting the line is an American term for queue jumping.
