The arch-rivals have partnered with the Red Cross since 1981 to see which university’s supporters can bring in the most blood donations.
Those who donate at a blood drive in the Western Lake Erie Region between Oct. 19 and Nov. 14 can enter to win a pair of tickets to the OSU vs. U of M football game Nov. 21. Donors will also receive a special Blood Battle window cling.
The Blood Battle generates thousands of pints of donated blood for the American Red Cross every year, which provides vital support for patients who need blood transfusions to help them through injury and illness.
Call 1-800-GIVE-LIFE or visit givelife.org for more information about blood drives or to schedule an appointment.
