UCT got their Varsity Cup campaign back on track with a 42-23 victory over UJ, while there were also wins for Maties, Tuks and NWU on Monday.
Back on their home ground after a bye in round three, Ikeys redeemed themselves after their humiliation at the hands of Cape rivals Maties.
The win was not as comfortable as the scoreline suggests, as the hosts found themselves trailing the rebuilding UJ in the first half.
However, a hat-trick from excellent No 8 Nyasha Tarusenga pushed UCT into an unassailable position as the hosts took control of the game in the second half.
The victory pushed UCT up to fifth place on the Varsity Cup log and they now sit level on 10 points with fourth-placed Shimlas.
Later in the day, Tuks won their second trans-Jukskei derby against Wits, 46-12 in Pretoria.
Tuks centre Lourens Pretorius scored a second-half brace to go with tries from prop Etienne Janeke, hooker Werner Fourie, wings Dewald Naude and Ciaran Dayaran and scrumhalf Raegan Oranje.
Meanwhile, defending champions Maties fielded a much-changed starting lineup but still scored eight tries in a 50-12 victory over CUT to continue their unbeaten start to the season.
In the final kickoff of the day, NWU produced a defensive masterclass to see off Shimlas in a 26-13 win.
