SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- There are now two superfans living atop an ESPN billboard in downtown San Jose. Four fans began the journey last week. They have been competing in challenges throughout the College Football Playoff.

Yes, they're living on a billboard full time for 12 days. It all started on Dec. 27, 2018.

Each fan represents a team in the playoffs. Our sister station, ESPN, created the billboard on Almaden Blvd.
