The 133rd Harvard-Yale football game was delayed by nudity


Ivy League colleges has a lot of old, weird traditions. The ” Saybrook Strip ” is one of them.

The custom calls for Yale students to strip off their clothes, to varying degrees, between the third and fourth quarter of football games. In the 133rd playing of “The Game” Saturday at Harvard, the strip got perhaps a little out of hand.

According to those at the game, about a dozen Yale students got completely naked and stood on the front-row wall of Harvard Stadium. The naked Ivy League butts reportedly delayed the start of the fourth quarter.

Whatever the merits of the tradition, Yale’s football did win Saturday’s game-breaking a streak of nine straight Harvard victories in the annual rivalry matchup. At the end of the field, Yale students rushed the field in celebration.

Fortunately, they appeared to stay clothed.
