NU became only the third team to win the UAAP Cheerdance Competition three straight times.
On the quest to finally overtake rival UST, UP had a rude awakening in 2013 as National University's wish finally came true.
Placing third in 2012, the Bulldogs showed more bite than bark at the Mall of Asia Arena a year later as the NU Pep Squad delivered an athletic and flawless performance to beat UP convincingly for their first title.
As the UAAP's new top dog, the NU Pep Squad wowed the audience with a a deadly combination of impressive stunts and showcased their unique flexibility that will make Mr. Fantastic proud.
Even at their worst during their current reign, NU was still a full two points better than UST in 2015, becoming the third team in history to score a three-peat.
Heading into 2016 still pretty much the team to beat, the NU Pep Squad now attempts something that only Salinggawi in its glory days have done: win four straight UAAP Cheerdance titles.
