State of the Bears
Brown will take on Harvard for the Stein Cup in the team's first home event of the season. Brown dropped three races at three-time defending national champion Washington last weekend, once week after taking down Boston University to retain the Michalson Cup. Brown was topped at Yale in the season opener, falling in the varsity eight and the junior varsity races. 

Brown vs. Harvard
Brown will take on Ivy League rival Harvard in the annual battle for the Stein Cup. Harvard captured three out of five races last season, including the varsity eight event, when the Crimson edged the Bears 5:53.6 to 5:54.7. Brown picked up victories in the Third Varsity and Freshman Eight races. 

Scouting the Crimson
Harvard is ranked No. 1 in the latest USRowing poll and will look for its fourth straight Stein Cup victory over Brown. This will be the second race of the season for the Crimson after last week's season opening win over Cornell. Harvard edged Brown to capture EARC Sprints last season and went on to earn silver at the IRA National Championship.
