At other schools, our friends are anxious for Thanksgiving break, but at Lafayette, we are anxious about the most anticipated football game ever—Laf vs. Lehigh, Rivalry 152.
First played in 1884, the Lafayette-Lehigh football game is the most-played football rivalry in America.
In addition to the pure excitement of being able to watch this historic game, the Lafayette community hosts a series of events throughout the week leading up to the game. The variety of activities and events make the anticipation of the game even greater.
Lafayette Activities Forum hosts one of my favorite activities of the week, stuff-a-plush. Students line up hours early in Farinon to ensure they get to stuff an animal of their choice and dress it in a special rivalry day T-shirt. Another highlight is Midnight Breakfast in Farinon where faculty and staff serve students. It is a great way to start gearing up for a great Laf-Lehigh rivalry day.
