They ‘nose nothing: Durham drills Oxford college in Uni Challenge drubbing

In good news for embittered Oxford rejects everywhere, the Durham University Challenge team has beaten that of Brasenose College, Oxford.

The win means David Cameron’s old Oxford college crash out and Durham proceed to the second round of the competition looking for their first win in over a decade.

The university has won the contest twice before, in both 1977 and 2000.
