'We Are the 6%' T-Shirt to Mark Historic Ivy League Football Rivalry

While ‘Occupy’ protests are taking place throughout the country, a student-run company at Harvard University is printing a line of mesh jerseys for the upcoming Harvard-Yale football game to include the slogan, “We are the 6%.”

The shirts will have “Occupy Yale” on the front and the 6 percent message on the back. The 6 percent is the percentage of applicants offered admission to the 2015 class of Harvard. The figure is about a percentage point less than Yale’s 7.35 percent acceptance rate.

The Yale Bulldogs lead the Harvard Crimson 65-54-8 heading into the 128th meeting on Saturday, but Harvard has won nine of the last 10.
