Cambridge face off against Oxford on the gridiron on the 6th of May, continuing the long running rivalry between these two universities.

Historically, the Cambridge Pythons have had the advantage, holding a 3-1-1 record in the past 5 years against the Lancers, after the decisive loss last year, this match is expected to be a close one.
After last season, both teams were in the same division, but separate conferences. The Pythons finished this year with a strong 6-2 record and +25 point differential, and secured a place in the playoffs.
The Lancers have had a more testing season, with a 1-7 record and a -139 point differential. They will be eager to prove themselves against their old rivals after such a challenging season.
Supporters are welcomed from both teams. The venue has a nearby parking lot, and is readily accessible by public transport.
