Surging University of Santo Tomas will try to close out their first round on a high note as they take on struggling University of the Philippines in UAAP Season 81 Men's Football action, Thursday afternoon at the FEU Diliman Football Field in Quezon City.
A rematch of last season's finals, the Growling Tigers try to gain a measure of revenge against the defending champion Fighting Maroons, who find themselves in unfamiliar waters after back-to-back losses to De La Salle University and Far Eastern University.
UP now tries to arrest their unusual two-game slide against a UST side that appears to have found new life after taking down University of the East and snapping a four-game winless streak that saw them draw three straight and then absorb a loss.
UST and UP take to the pitch at 1:00 PM.
Top-seeded FEU, meanwhile, will look to continue their winning ways when they take on a hungry Adamson University.
Currently sitting at the top of the standings, the Tamaraws are once again looking like the powerhouse football program that once won back-to-back titles. They have won their last two matches and remain as the lone unbeaten team in the tournament.
Adamson meanwhile, is still searching for their elusive first win of the season after having drawn three of their first five matches while losing the rest.
FEU and Adamson meet at 3:00 PM.
In the first match of the day, University of the East tries to get back to their winning ways against winless National University.
Looking to make a legitmate push for the playoffs, the Red Warriors have managed to snag two wins and a draw to keep themselves in the thick of the post-season race.
Currently at the bottom of the standings, the Bulldogs have also yet to taste the maximum points in a match, and hope to finally break into the win column.
UE and NU battle at 9:00 AM.
