College Sports: Watch: Bald eagle goes rogue during Cotton Bowl national anthem, finds a few landing spots on Notre Dame fans

The highlight reel at this year’s Cotton Bowl took off (literally) before the game between Nortre Dame and Clemson even began.

During the national anthem at AT&T Stadium, in a sight commonly seen at sports venues across the country, a bald eagle was released to fly over the crowd during The Star-Spangled Banner.

This particular eagle, however, decided to take ‘land of the free’ a little too much to heart, and instead of flying directly to his handler, took its own tour of AT&T Stadium which included picking out a few choice landing spots on a few Fighting Irish fans:

Yahoo Sports’ Pat Forde was in attendance at Jerry World and gave this account of the scene:

“Clark toured the stadium and alighted upon the shoulder of a freaked out ND fan in a green t-shirt. He then moved to another section in the third level, corner of stadium, and a different ND fan held up his arm like a pro and the eagle landed. Clearly the eagle favors the Irish.

“From there one of his handlers hustled up to procure him”

The real question is — is it too early to hand out the Cotton Bowl MVP award?
