Some residents near Baylor University are upset after discovering prank letters that falsely stated the school is seizing their homes to make way for a new, $255 million football stadium. The Waco Tribune-Herald reports Sunday that pranksters slipped official-looking fliers under doormats and taped them to the doors of houses and apartment buildings in neighborhoods near the campus. The fliers said the university was seizing properties in the neighborhood to make way for the football stadium to be built next March.

Baylor spokeswoman Lori Fogleman says it's "absolutely false."

Campus police collected at least 232 of the fliers Saturday afternoon. They also comforted some elderly residents who were in tears over possibly losing their homes.
