Longtime archrivals competing for a title makes a very compelling story to avid fans and viewers. The rivalry between the UAAP teams is no secret especially when it comes De La Salle University and Ateneo de Manila University. The Ateneo-La Salle games have drawn fervent and passionate crowds screaming either for the Animo Spirit or Gold and Glory. This is why fans are in for a treat this UAAP Season 79 Women's Volleyball Finals as ADMU and DLSU battle it out on who gets the championship title. Below are six things that make the ADMU vs. DLSU games fascinating and distinctive.

  1. The intensity of the games.

Each respective team can get seriously competitive when playing against each other. You can see the energy emanating from the players as they dive, glide, and jump on the floor like it's nothing or it doesn't hurt. Everybody wants in on the action!

  1. The way coaches go beast mode.

Watching Coach Ramil hype up the Lady Spikers gets the crowd feeling like they're also part of the team while Coach Tai intensely cheering for the Blue Eagles and him jumping around every time they score a point gets the crowd riled up.

  1. Both teams have got a whole lot of history.

The way Ateneans and Lasallians compete never disappoints, and it's been going on for several decades already. Generations of athletes from both universities took the rivalry serious enough to have won victories and legacies that have marked a true Atenean and a bona fide Lasallian.

  1. Several referees have been roasted for calling one too many "wrong calls."

The referees are more controversial when it comes to ADMU vs. DLSU games. When fans can't get over a loss or a missed point, somehow, someway, it's always the referees fault. Sorry, refs!

  1. Watching the crowd go wild is as equally entertaining as watching the game.

When it comes to the ADMU vs. DLSU games, the crowd goes uncontrollably wild—from students, school staff, and alumni to pro-athletes, celebrities, and even politicians.

  1. At the end of every game, it's still all about sportsmanship.

As intense as every game is, once it ends, the players from both teams purge the fierceness and competitiveness by hugging it out, proving that win or lose, everyone's a good sport.
