Michigan vs. Ohio State Blood Battle since 1982

Blood Battle at the Unversity of Michigan!

 

Are you a Wolverine

or a Buckeye?

Whether you bleed maize and blue or scarlet and grey, you can show your colors by donating blood during the annual Michigan-Ohio State Blood Battle with the American Red Cross each November.

Since 1982 students and fans of the two schools have battled to take top honors in giving blood.   The Blood Battle has grown into one of the largest blood competitions in the country with more than 2,500 donations given on each campus alone.
