FAR Eastern University-Diliman opens its bid for a seventh straight championship against De La Salle-Zobel today in the UAAP Season 79 juniors football tournament at the Moro Lorenzo Field.
With reigning MVP Kieth Absalon leading the charge, the Baby Tamaraws take on the Junior Archers at 4 p.m.
Last season’s runner-up Ateneo take on University of Santo Tomas in the day’s other match at 2 p.m.
FEU-Diliman kept its stranglehold of high school football after topping the table last season with a maximum of 18 points. The Baby Tamaraws will play the Tiger Cubs on Dec. 10 before capping the first round with a showdown with last season’s runner-up Blue Eaglets on December 17.
The second round of action will resume on January 14 right after a month-long holiday break.
