Jessica Simpson Is Team Yale

It seems that even celebs are gearing up for The Game this Saturday. Singer and former reality-TV star Jessica Simpson stepped out on Friday wearing a sweatshirt in support of our friends down in New Haven, and it isn't the first time she's shown her allegiance for the bulldogs. Leaving no doubts as to where her loyalties lie, Simpson is engaged to Yale alum and former football player Eric Johnson, who scored the game-winning touchdown in the 1999 Harvard–Yale Game.

Celebrities who have worn their support for Harvard in the past include Tyra Banks (no surprise there), who has repeatedly appeared on Time Magazine's list of most influential people, and Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman '03. Simpson, who once mistook tuna for chicken and thought that platypus was pronounced "platymapus," is perhaps better suited for Yale after all.
