The Harvard-Yale football matchup is known among their alumni as “the game.” So, when students protesting global warming stormed the Yale Bowl at halftime, “the game” made national news for the first time in over a generation and it had nothing to do with football.

If anything, demonstrators made folks aware that Harvard and Yale do indeed field football teams. The stampede by nearly 1,000 students demanded that both schools divest their multi-billion dollar endowments from all fossil fuel companies.
