A University of Texas cheerleader performs in front of a giant Texas flag draped on the UT Tower during the Hex Rally in Austin, Texas on November 21, 2011. The tradition started in 1941 to break a losing streak against rival the Texas A&M Aggies. According to legend, in 1941 students consulted fortune teller Madam Augusta Hipple who instructed them to burn red candles the week before the game as a way of "hexing" the Aggies.
