Sam Agarwal shone with the ball for Oxford MCCU on the first day of their match against Kent in The Parks.
The off-spinner returned excellent figures of 4-49 off 16.4 overs as Kent made 251-8 before declaring.
The students were 50-2 in reply at stumps.
Seamers Dan Conway and Ben Kemp made early inroads after Kent won the toss and elected to bat, reducing them to 41-3.
Stuart Newman and Alex Blake then halted the slide, putting on 117 before Newman was trapped leg-before by Agarwal for 89.
Blake went on to top-score with 97 before he too fell to the off spinner, who later dismissed Fabian Cowdrey, grandson of Sir Colin, for one.
Left-arm seamer Adam Ball sent back Agarwal and Freddie Coleman cheaply when Oxford replied, before Ben Williams and Charlie Walker led a recovery.
