After getting their first win earlier this season against DLSU, things have gone downhill for the Soaring Falcons, most recently dropping their fifth loss of the season to an also-struggling UE team.

After tearing through the men's football rankings so far, the FEU Tamaraws were held to a draw for the first time this season by defending champions UP. They former back-to-back champions have a chance to return to their winning ways, before closing the season out against top-seeded Ateneo.
After a rough start to Season 79, the Red Warriors finally saw results of their hard work after defeating Adamson for their first win of the season. They look to carry that momentum against the FEU Tamaraws.
FEU and UE meet at 5:00 PM.
