TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Students at Arizona State and Arizona try to prank each other in the days leading up to their annual football game.
 
This year, students at the University of Arizona were fooled by some ASU students into supporting fake legislation that would return the Tucson school to Mexico's possession.
 
Four ASU students drove down to UA's campus and posed as petitioners.
 
The group told UA students they were garnering signatures for "Proposition 200" that would return the university to Mexico as it supposedly was built on stolen land.
 
The petition signing was picked up by the UA's student newspaper, the Daily Wildcat.
 
The paper's editorial leaders wrote Wednesday that they were embarrassed by the bogus story and hoped a Wildcats' win in Saturday's game "will settle the score."
