    Some Yale fans celebrated their win against Harvard in the buff on Saturday in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

    The Bulldogs beat The Crimson 21-14 in the 133rd edition of The Game at Harvard Stadium.

    After the final kneel-down, Yale students poured out of the stands to celebrate with the team at midfield. Others danced in the form of a giant "Y" in the corner of the stadium that was the full height of the seating bowl.

    "I was overjoyed, obviously," linebacker Darius Manora said, noting that he had played his last Game but would not stop rooting for the team: "As an alum, I'm excited for the future."

    Other Yale fans didn't wait for the end of the game to let it all out in support of their team.

    Although the traditional mid-November matchup has seen some days so frigid that fans head home with frostbite, this one was played under sunny skies and temperatures in the 50s.

    That was warm enough for a dozen or so students in the Yale student section to strip off their clothes and dance naked on the concrete wall of the century-old stadium. Police were seen escorting some from the stands, but a Harvard spokeswoman said there were no arrests.
