Idaho's band stepping in for Yale's band is the best thing you will see today

We all love the chaos and upsets of March Madness, but the moments that warm your heart like Sister Jean and the Idaho band are great too.

Yale pulled off one of the great upsets of the first round of March Madness over Auburn. It was a close game the entire way, but it looked like Auburn was pulling away late until the Bulldogs decided they weren't going to lose the game.

With a great fan section and the heart to win, Yale was able to pull ahead in the final minutes of the game and not let the lead go. They got to have the joy of celebrating with each other, thier fans, and their band that traveled across the country, oh wait never mind.

Yale's band was not able to make the cross-country trip from New Haven, Connecticut to Spokane, Washington. So who was going to lead the Bulldogs in the Yale fight song? Well here is something that will warm your heart.

The University of Idaho's band learned the Yale fight song, all got Yale shirts and stepped in the Bulldogs band to support them in their battle against Auburn. Clearly, something worked because the Bulldogs were able to defeat the Tigers to move on to the second round.

The band will get to play another day as Yale is set to take on San Diego State in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Sunday, March 24 at 9:40 p.m. ET.

Now I am sure in the future if Yale and Idaho ever play each other, both bands will wear their respective colors, but this is just awesome to see. Fans supporting fans, maybe one day Yale will get to return the favor.
