The Tar Heels are at it again. Before the first Duke-UNC matchup this year, North Carolina students stole the head off the Blue Devil mascot and hung it from one of the buildings on UNC’s campus.
This time around, Carolina fans invaded Durham, and placed a copy of the UNC fight song in all of the hymnals in the Duke University Chapel.

UNC first steels Duke Mascot, then they put their fight song in our hymnals! Duke just wins, no time for pranks. @thedukenation

UNC’s stolen mascot head prank had whimsy, but Keri Russell is far more impressed with Duke planting a mole in the UNC band. #Americans‘d

This one doesn’t seem nearly as funny or creative as the first one, although it certainly must have been a shock to church-goers at Duke.
As always though, the real bragging rights will come about tonight — the game between the school schools will be at 9:00 on ESPN.
