Video: Harvard pranks Yale students into protesting their own football program

The Harvard-Yale game is this Saturday, and it's the biggest edition of The Game in a long, long time. Harvard is 9-0, Yale is 8-1, the Ivy League title is on the line, and College GameDay will be there to rile everyone up.

For the second year in a row, Harvard students have pranked Yale leading into The Game, and this one is pretty brilliant. The Crimson have won seven in a row and 12 of the past 13 in the series, so a group of Harvard students posed as Yale students forming the Yale Society of Undergraduate College Kids Standing Against Sports Spending (get it?), protesting that since Yale can't beat Harvard in football, the program should be shut down entirely and use the millions of dollars spent on the football program toward academics.

I'm assuming the prank was so successful because this is absolutely the type of protest Yale students would organize.
