UST and UP break the internet again thanks to entertaining match
ABS-CBN Sports on Sep 14, 2015 01:49 PM
The UST-UP game lived up to hype both on the court and off of it.
The first round match of the UST Growling Tigers and the UP Fighting Maroons in the UAAP Season 78 lived up to the hype surrounding it a few days before the actual game.
Not only did fans came in bunches to set the early record for attendance this season at the Mall of Asia Arena, the game itself came down the wire as the Maroons were Fighting right until Ed Daquioag and Kevin Ferrer won it for the Tigers.
Oh and also, the game lit up the internet as well. Again.
Check out some of the best online reactions from yesterday's highly-anticipated Church vs. State game.
First of all, we all knew this would be happening.

UP fans really wanted to get in the heads of their UST counterparts, all in jest of course.

Seriously, UP wanted to win the game so bad not just for a clean UAAP slate, but to rewrite history.
