Far Eastern University and National University clash in a winner-take-all match for the last Finals seat.
Throw away all the stats and results from their last two matches for only the outcome of their do-or-die match on Wednesday will matter for National University and Far Eastern University.
The two squads meet one last time in Game 3 of their Premier Volleyball League Season Collegiate Conference men’s division best-of-three Final Four series at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan to determine which team will advance in the championship round.
The top seed Bulldogs and Tamaraws collide at 10:00 a.m. for the right to face University of Sto. Tomas for the crown.
FEU, which needed to go through a do-or-die match against College of St. Benilde to advance to the semis, shocked NU last Saturday after scoring a 21-25, 25-22, 25-17, 25-23, win.
The Bulldogs were quick to recover the following morning to even the series, 25-21, 25-20, 21-25, 25-21, and force a decider.
The winner of the match will take on the Tigers, who swept Adamson University in their semis pairing, in the best-of-three Finals while the loser will be relegated in the battle for third.
Game 1 of the championship series is on Sunday.
