Three words, FHM Nation: Do. Or. Die!
The NU Bulldogs revived their quest for a UAAP basketball championship by holding off the FEU Tamaraws, 62-47, yesterday, October 8. Now that the series is tied at one game a piece, the nation can look forward to a third and deciding game next week (October 15). This is turning out much better than what we had anticipated!
Troy Rosario led the Bulldogs with 19 points and 14 rebounds, while Mac Belo was one of only two Tamaraws who scored in double figures at 17. Press play on the video below to see the highlights:

But you know what else made this game memorable? It drew a whopping 24,896 fans—the biggest ever to watch a basketball game at the Smart Araneta Coliseum!
There were probably no Atenistas or La Sallistas in the coliseum, yet look at the turnout. And to think some coño netizens labeled this year's finals as a jeje event. Eat that, you spawns of Senyora Santibañez!
To online bashers who insisted that the Tamaraws and the Bulldogs were only capable of filling the Gen Ad seats, you're going to want to see this!
The FEU-NU game broke the attendance record (24,883) previously set by the Ginebra Gin Kings and the San Mig Coffee Mixers earlier this year. That's right—they toppled Manila Clasico!
