The UST Tigers and the defending champion FEU Tamaraws square off in UAAP Men's Football action!
Matches on Saturday, February 27 (McKinley Hill Stadium)
1:00 PM - UST vs. FEU (Women's)
4:00 PM - FEU vs. UST (Men's)
7:00 PN - UP vs. Ateneo (Women's)
The new-look University of Santo Tomas Tigers look to continue their impressive start in the UAAP Season 78 Men’s Football tournament when they take on defending champions Far Eastern University, Saturday afternoon at the McKinley Hill Stadium.
Motivated by missing out on the Final Four during Season 77, UST has started strong this season, holding top-seed De La Salle to a draw, while derailing National University’s momentum by handing them their first loss this year.
With two wins and two draws to start the season, the Tigers put their unbeaten season to the test against the defending champions.
Season 78 has not gone how the FEU Tamaraws would like. After winning their first game against Ateneo in commanding fashion, the champs looked to have regained their dominant form but instead figured to a draw against NU and then fell to De La Salle in their loss of the season.
The Tams will try to get back on the win column and look to test the surging Tigers.
In the women’s division, the UST Tigresses also take on defending women’s champions FEU Lady Tamaraws, with both teams still in search of their first win of the season, while the Battle of Katipunan heads to McKinley Hill as the UP Lady Maroons take on the Ateneo Lady Eagles.
