MANILA, Philippines—With key players back to power their bids, University of the Philippines and Far Eastern U remain hot favorites for a repeat romp in the UAAP Season 74 football tournaments that kick off Jan. 15 at the Ateneo pitch.

Southeast Asian Games veterans Jinggoy Valmayor and Reymark Fernandez will spearhead the Fighting Maroons following the departure of last year’s Most Valuable Player Stephen Permanes, while the Lady Tamaraws will still rely on last season’s MVP Frea Fado.
