Students got ready for the game at Kamine Gym Thursday night during the annual Rivalry Weekend pep rally. There was a Mountain Hawk wing-eating contest, a Toss the Hawk event, and a Lafayette Spirit Costume competition. Comedians Myq Kaplan, from the latest season of “Last Comic Standing,” and Ben Bailey, the host of “Cash Cab” on the Discovery Channel, closed out the night. Check out a photo gallery from the pep rally.
The rivalry dates back to 1884 when Lafayette shut out Lehigh 50-0 in Easton. The Leopards lead the series 76-65-5. Home field advantage plays a big role: Lafayette leads 41-24-5 when playing in Easton and Lehigh has a 40-36-0 edge over the Leopards in Bethlehem.
