A bald eagle called his own number during the national anthem before Saturday's College Football Playoff semifinal matchup between Clemson and Notre Dame at AT&T Stadium.

Rather than returning to its handler, the eagle went rogue and, according to Yahoo Sports, landed on multiple Notre Dame fans. Naturally, Fighting Irish fans are taking this as a good sign.

The eagle reportedly eventually did make its way back to its handler.
