(Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)The College Football Playoff is underway. Clemson and Notre Dame are doing battle at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Tex. The winner will play Alabama or Oklahoma in the national title game.Jerry World is packed to the brim with fans. Both fan bases traveled well, but it looks like one program has a slight advantage.Notre Dame fans, decked out in blue, gold and green, seem to outnumber Clemson orange in the crowd.Media estimates by those in attendance have been in the ’55-45′ or ’60-40′ range.I would say around 55/45 Notre Dame/Clemson fans here. This stadium will be loud either way.— Dylan Sinn (@DylanSinn) December 29, 2018Eyeball estimate of Cotton Bowl crowd is 60/40 Irish fans, according to @max_olson. pic.twitter.com/xSzofDpiBV— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) December 29, 2018It makes sense that ND might have slightly more fans. There are Fighting Irish fans all over the country, and the program has played Shamrock Series Games in Texas recently.Notre Dame and Clemson have traded punts the first two possessions. We’re still waiting for the first big play in this one.You can tune in on ESPN.last_img read more
