WATCH THIS: Eagle lands on Notre Dame fan's arm before Cotton Bowl

FT. WORTH, Tex. (WIBW) -- A Notre Dame fan lived out the dream of every Auburn fan who's ever screamed "war damn eagle" when an eagle flying around AT&T Stadium roosted on his arm during the national anthem ahead of the Cotton Bowl.

Regardless of the final score, it was an unforgettable afternoon for at least one Notre Dame supporter.
