SAN JOSE, CA (WSPA) – Two college football fans, one rooting for Clemson and the other rooting for Alabama, remain living on a billboard in downtown San Jose after the college football playoff semifinals.
The group, chosen as part of a promotion by ESPN, was whittled down to two after fans representing Notre Dame and Oklahoma were booted after their teams lost, Saturday.
The remaining fans, Clemson alumna Nancy Volland and Crimson Tide fan Llyas Ross Sr., were two of four people chosen to represent their favorite team while living on a billboard 45 feet above downtown San Jose.
Over 700 fans submitted videos to ESPN to win a shot to represent their team.
The fans began living on the billboard on December 27.
Volland attended Clemson University when the Tigers won the national championship in 1981 and her daughter attended during the 2016 championship run. She currently lives in Florida.
Ross is a three tour U.S. Army veteran who lives in Tuscaloosa.
The two will leave the billboard January 7 to watch the national championship game. The fans also have opportunities to earn cash and prizes while on the billboard.
ESPN is live streaming the entire experience on ESPN3.
