COOL SCHOOLS | Classic Rivalries

Harvard vs. Yale

BEST PRANK
Yale students handed out signs to almost 2,000 Harvard fans at a 2004 football game that, when raised, together spelled out "WE SUCK."

OVERHEARD ON CAMPUS
"Each year, we're friends for 364 days and rivals for just one," said former Harvard football coach Joe Restic. Many students would beg to differ.

ECO-ADVANTAGE
#8 HARVARD, #26 YALE With emissions reductions at both schools approaching 7 percent in recent years, this one came down to extra points.

USC vs. UCLA

BEST PRANK
USC students now stand guard over their beloved "Tommy Trojan" statue after a classic 1953 prank involving a saw and some creative welding skills resulted in the bronze Trojan stabbing himself in the back.

OVERHEARD ON CAMPUS
"Beating 'SC is not a matter of life or death," UCLA Hall of Fame coach Henry "Red" Sanders has said. "It's more important than that."

ECO-ADVANTAGE
#25 UCLA, #123 USC UCLA dominated much of the game but USC vows to mount a challenge next year. —Kyle Boelte
