University Challenge 2016/2017: through to the final

Tuesday 4 April

Balliol will play against Wolfson College, Cambridge, in the final of University Challenge on 10 April 2017 at 8.00pm on BBC, having beaten the University of Edinburgh 215-140 in the semi-final. You can watch what presenter Jeremy Paxman described as their ‘terrific performance’ in the semi-final on the BBC iPlayer.

Balliol has been in the final of University Challenge twice before: in 1963, when the team lost to Leicester, and in 1974, when they lost to Trinity.
