Grad students, in my experience, usually don't get into the inter-school rivalry, but I was an undergrad, and we got into it big-time. Especially since we thought of Cal as the "working class Harvard," and Stanford as being where the snooty, upper-class types went. Still, several of my buds from high school went to Stanford, and I always thought Palo Alto was a great town.

For those of you who aren't from the Bay Area, the annual football game between Cal and Stanford is (to our minds anyway), the biggest of the "Big Games." Certainly, it's one of the oldest, predating Army-Navy (actually, I'm not altogether sure of this one), Michigan-Ohio State, UCLA-USC, and Texas-Texas A&M. Harvard-Yale (where, with typical Ivy League arrogance, it's referred to as simply "The Game," "Big" apparently being redundant, when the contenders are such of such heroic, titanic stature), is older. but it's one of the few. Certainly, Cal-Stanford is the oldest college football rivalry in the West.
