How many times have you spent a fall Saturday on the couch watching college football and arguing with your friends over whether Notre Dame is a Hufflepuff or a Slytherin?
Well, a group of Reddit users with a love of Harry Potter and football, and far too much free time have finally answered that question for you and they say the Fighting Irish would be in Ravenclaw, surprisingly.
U/Bakonydraco spearheaded the project, which puts each FBS team into a respective house based on stats like wins over Top 10 teams, Academic All-Americans and team revenue.
Ohio State, LSU, Miami and East Carolina room with Harry, Hermione and Ron in Gryffindor. Texas, Alabama and Michigan sit with the parselmouths of Slytherin. Northwestern, Stanford and Illinois join the academic-minded Ravenclaw house. The well-meaning Hufflepuffs include Maryland, Rutgers and Connecticut.
