Forget Chelsea vs Manchester United taking over the EastEnders schedule tonight, it was all about Warwick vs Wolfson on tonight's (March 13) episode of University Challenge.
As expected, the showdown between the two universities was epic in its proportions – making it all the more difficult for you lot at home to decide who to root for.
Whichever side you were backing, at least there's one thing we can all agree on: we won't see a battle like Rudd vs Monkman for a very, very long time. Until the finals, of course.
It's Rudd v Monkman. It's Fraser vAli, it's Borg v McEnroe, it's Prost v Senna #UniversityChallenge- The Bertieful South (@BertiefulSouth) March 13, 2017
Dammit, Warwick vs. Wolfson, I don't want either to lose. #UniversityChallenge- Ozzy (@karohemd) March 13, 2017
Never have I been so torn as to which team I want to win on university challenge #monkman- Victoria Crome (@VCrome15) March 13, 2017
What a dilemma - Monkman or Rudd? Who should I support? #universitychallenge- KC (@kacsh100) March 13, 2017

It's Rudd v Monkman - my cup runneth over #UniversityChallenge- Catherine Jones (@BodenJones) March 13, 2017
Alas, there could only have been one winner...
Securing their spot in the semi-final alongside Emmanuel and Edinburgh was Monkman and his team.
The team beat Warwick by 30 points with 205, despite a late surge by the Rudd et al – so Wolfson College, Cambridge were eventually declared triumphant by host Jeremy Paxman.
In what was a truly bittersweet moment, fans at home realised that while Wolfson's victory meant they'd get to see Monkman and Co live to see another day, it also meant saying goodbye to Rudd.
Mixed feelings tonight regarding #universitychallenge. Sad to see Warwick out but Monkman is an icon of our generation and I love him- Charlotte (@charlottemcggg) March 13, 2017
