PHILADELPHIA -
Saturday's Adams Cup will be the 80th edition of the race between Penn, Harvard, and Navy, with Penn looking to claim its 17th in the series. Harvard holds the all-time lead in the Adams Cup with 49 wins and Navy has 14 victories. The Crimson have claimed 11 in a row, including a win by 0.4 seconds over Navy on the Schuylkill in 2011. The start is an early one for the squad, with the first race - the varsity eight with the Adams Cup at stake - beginning at 6:45 a.m.

First contested in 1928, the race between Penn, Harvard and Navy was named the Adams Cup in 1933 to honor Charles Francis Adams, a Harvard graduate who served as Secretary of the Navy. No. 16 Penn will compete against a pair of top-ten teams this weekend as Harvard enters as the No. 2-ranked crew in the country and Navy is No. 8.

The schedule of races on Saturday is as follows:
6:45 a.m. - First Varsity
