All I know of is Oxford vs Cambridge and Kings College London vs University College London. Surely there must be more? Just wondering.

Every ex-poly will have some form of banter with the more established university in the same town or city. Just to save us some time here.

KCL is a prime example.

Newcastle Sunderland (more amongst locals though)

I feel even cleverer since my knowledge of history is minimal, to say the least

I've absolutely no idea, but there has been a thread before on this and apparently there isn't so much a rivalry there.

I'm fairly sure they play each other in some sport or other and Newcastle has the historical link of being a former part of Durham University. I could be wrong however.

Yeah, that's what the person I linked to said, so I'm assuming it is correct. I've no idea as I've already said, but they downplayed it as a rivalry as it is restricted to just a boat race and not much else. I suppose the historical link is enough reason though.
Durham pisses all over Newcastle anyways

No bias there I'm sure!
Born and bred in County Durham. The only reason I didn't go to Durham University was because I wanted to live far enough from home that I wouldn't be tempted to come back all the time.

Says he, as he sits at his kitchen table. At home :rolleyes:
