UAAP Season 81: Final Four teams clash for seeding
Repeat-seeking National University and Far Eastern University dispute the no. 1 seed in the UAAP Season 81 men's volleyball Final Four.

Final Four-bound teams clash in a pair of crucial matches for their seeding as the UAAP Season 81 men’s volleyball elimination round at the FilOil Flying V Centre on Sunday.

Ateneo de Manila University and Adamson University collide at 8:00 p.m. with the no. 3 seed at stake. The match will air live LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and via livestream.

Both the Blue Eagles and Falcons carry 9-4 win-loss slates and the winner of the match will take on the twice-to-beat second seed in the semifinals.       

Meanwhile, streaking defending champion National University and Far Eastern University rekindle their rivalry at 10:00 a.m. in a match that will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and via livestream.

Both teams already secured the semis advantage and will just dispute the no. 1 seeding. The winner of the match will take on the no. 4 squad in the Final Four.

The Bulldogs sport a 12-1 slate while the Tamaraws parade an 11-2 mark.

FEU defeated NU in their first meeting. If the Tams repeat over the Bulldogs, FEU will take the no. 1 spot.

But it won’t be an easy task as the Tams will have to contend against a different NU side, which won all of its next 12 games after a shocking loss in its season-opener.
