Kick-off is at 3 p.m.
The Baby Tamaraws and the Bullpups battled to a scoreless draw in their two elimination-round meetings this season.
FEU-Diliman is seeking to extend its dynastic rule to nine years, while NU is eyeing to claim a breakthrough championship right on its second year of participation.
In the men’s division, Ateneo makes it debut against University of the East at 1 p.m., while University of Santo Tomas seeks the solo lead as it tangles with Adamson University at 9 a.m.
Gio Pabualan and Orlan Togores may have been gone after their successful six-year high school run, but the Baby Tamaraws were able to claim the top of the table with 17 points.

After a third-place finish during its debut last season, the Bullpups made huge strides with 16 points in second spot -- entering the one-game final undefeated with four wins and four draws.
