Meet the Fed Challenge Team 
Rutgers-Newark doesn’t have a football team, but since 2005 it has fielded a team that has made four trips to a “brain bowl.” Each year a five-student team, fielded by the Economics Department and coached by department chair John Graham , competes in the College Fed Challenge sponsored by the Federal Reserve Board. In late 2011 the team  came in second in the national finals in Washington, D.C., bested only by the team from Harvard. 2011 marked the fourth time in six years that the R-N team has reached the national finals, and the third time it has placed in the top three national teams. The national finals were the capstone to five district competitions throughout the country. Read more
