Prospective students are no longer safe from the tricks and meddling that stem from a centuries-old Ivy League rivalry.

One of the many traditions of the Game, the football rivalry between Harvard and Yale and the biggest sporting event of the year, is for opposing students to prank one another leading up to game day. The 130th meeting of these two schools is this Saturday, and in light of this year’s upcoming Game, On Harvard Time, Harvard’s Internet comedy-news show, decided to take the show to enemy territory.

Donning Yale gear, the guys headed to New Haven and set up camp offering free tours for prospective students. Unaware that their tour guides were Harvard students, wanna-be Yalies were treated to plenty of insults toward Yale (and plenty of gothic architecture), followed by one final word of advice: Go to Harvard.

With just two days until the Game, the ball is now in Yale’s possession.
