Congrats NU for being the champion of the uaap cdc. Congrats din UST for gaining the 1st place and UP for the 2nd place.— lloyd anidem (@lloydanidem) October 3, 2015
Cheerleading is all about how difficult you performed the stunt not how beautiful you performed the stunt. Congrats NU! #UAAPCDC2015— Gian (@shotiigian) October 3, 2015
NU won because nobody challenged their intensive stunt difficulty. In boxing, you can't steal a belt by playing safe. #UAAPCDC2015— Jeff Alagar (@IN2Jeff) October 3, 2015
CDC Champions: NU PEP SQUAD!!!!!! Wooo their high level of difficulty made up for the errors in the routine. Congrats! #UAAPCDC2015— UAAP Cheerdance (@UAAP_CDC) October 3, 2015

There was also shock and anger especially those who felt that the University of the Philippines Pep Squad or the University of Santo Tomas Salinggawi Dance Troupe should have won the competition.
The last time I've seen this amount of shock from tweeps in my TL? When Undertaker went 21 and 1 in Wrestlemania. #UAAPCDC2015— Jan Yap (@jmcyap) October 3, 2015
I also can't believe the UST Salinggawi only landed in second place. If NU wins again, despite their error-filled routine... #UAAPCDC2015— Julian Mauricio (@JulianMauricio) October 3, 2015
