I'm at St Andrews and there is not rivalry. Rivalry does not necessarily have to be because they are of equal standing or ranking as unis.

The biggest rivalry and most talked about is St Andrews vs Dundee and mostly just involves St Andrews trashing Dundee when they are drunk.
Kind of silly, as Dundee is a decent university, around the Leicester or Lancaster tier of universities.

Durham vs St Andrews is a great rivalry in terms of which one wants to portray itself as the biggest half-assed rip off of Oxbridge. Edinburgh vs Glasgow is a more traditional clash of the titans, two large and ancient research powerhouses.
So what characterizes a "half-assed rip off of Oxbridge?"

Its not for lack of resources its lack of a city that can support a hospital. Besides, Durham's medical school sends its students to Newcastle after 2nd year anyways.
It doesn't just have a hospital designed to support 250000 people, but it's called The University Hospital of North Durham.
