There's a short story by Jeffrey Archer that features a couple who meet as academic rivals at one of the old British universities and develop a sweetly antagonistic romance over many years. Can you help me find it?

As it's a short story I don't think there's much more of the plot I can usefully share. I recall a bit of tension over who would score higher on an exam or possibly take a graduating honor, and a bit where one needles the other over a crossword completion. I can't recall what the twist is, if there is one. It's from a collection that was published sometime before 2000, the latest I might have read it.
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer with this longshot question!
