Football fever

Surprises at the 91st season of the NCAA football finals
05:10 AM January 24, 2016

AT THE National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), football is known for its “dynasties,” with a handful of schools dominating the sport. The recent juniors and seniors finals at the Rizal Football Field, however, proved that there’s plenty of room for new and exciting teams to shine.

La Salle Green Hills won the juniors division for the second straight year, gaining momentum from a come-from-behind performance to beat San Beda College-Rizal, 5-3.
