Three schools in the men's and women's step-ladder semifinals open their campaign to survive a longer route to the Finals of the UAAP Season 78 badminton tournament.
Ateneo de Manila takes on University of the Philippines in their knockout duel in the men's division at 8:00 a.m., while the Lady Eagles play Far Eastern University in a no-tomorrow match in the women's side at 1:00 p.m.
Reigning titlists National University and University of the Philippines have advanced to the men's and women's championship round outright after sweeping all of their seven ties in the eliminations, respectively.
The Bulldogs and the Lady Maroons hold a tremendous thrice-to-beat advantage in the Finals as an incentive for going perfect in the qualifying round.
De La Salle's men's and women's squads, meanwhile, hold the twice-to-beat bonus in the second step-ladder semis for finishing second in the elims.
The Green Archers will take on the winner of the Blue Eagles-Fighting Maroons match on Saturday, while the Lady Archers will battle the survivor of the Lady Eagles-Lady Tamaraws tussle on the same day.
The title round will start on Oct. 14.
