LIVESTREAM: Game of the Week In Mexico – UNAM Pumas v UANL Auténticos Tigres

The UNAM CU Pumas, still celebrating after their convincing win last week over the Burros Blancos 34-10 will play host to the first place UANL Auténticos Tigres Saturday at the Olympic Stadium in Mexico City in the second last weekend of regular season play in the ONEFA league.

The Pumas improved to 4-3 with their win last week but face a daunting task against the 6-1 Tigres. The Tigres lone loss this season came at the hands of the powerful UDLAP Aztecs from the CONADEIP league who will face San Diego U next week.

Nevertheless, this is a key game for the Pumas in their playoff hunt. Although the Tigres boast the top offense in the Green Conference scoring 247 points in seven games as well as the best defense surrendering 128 points, the Pumas defense has proven to be formidable allowing 129 points in that time span.

The last time these two teams met was in the championship final last year when the Tigres prevailed 16-7. 

The Tigres are coming off a magical 2015 season which saw them go undefeated. This means that they have lost just one game in two seasons up to this point. The Pumas, who have won the ONEFA title three times, most recently in 2014, will have their work cut out for them.

Kickoff: Saturday October 29 12 Noon (1 PM EDT, 7 PM CET)
