Game 3 of the UAAP Season 77 Finals, however, is where it all ends. This is where dreams will be realized (or goes to die). This is the land of milk and honey; the light at the end of the tunnel; the brawl to end it all. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the war to settle the score. And it's just a night's sleep away!
Before we head into the deciding game tomorrow (Wednesday, October 15), below are the (mostly confident, slightly kabado) things the Bulldogs and Tamaraws' have said about Game 3!
"It's a must win na dahil do-or-die. Sabi nga namin, we're not really used to it naman pero marami na kaming do-or-die games. Pero iba pa rin yung situation kasi finals na, eh." - Gelo Alolino
"On our part, we had to manage yung emotions kasi gusto naming manalo na talaga. I think that's something na hindi namin successfully nagawa kasi magulo kami sa start [ng Game 2]. Aggressive sila at na-limit nila kami. Pero malaki ang tiwala ko kay coach [that he could help us get over it]." - Mac Belo
"Gusto ko lang makatulong sa team. Ayokong maging last game ko ito (Game 2) sa college, ito ang pinaka-importanteng game para sa amin. Ito na ang start ng finals namin." - Troy Rosario
"Hindi ako sobrang gamit noong 2011 (FEU's last finals appearance), pero may advantage rin sa amin na alam na namin ang pakiramdam sa finals na ganoon ka-pressure." - Roger Pogoy
"Game Three is a different ballgame. It's always different. You throw everything out so you have to come out and be ready to play." - Coach Eric Altamirano
