The community is invited to roll up a sleeve and give blood with the American Red Cross during the 36th annual Blood Battle between The Ohio State University and the University of Michigan now through Nov. 22.
During the Blood Battle, the archrivals will partner with the Red Cross to see which university’s supporters can bring in the most blood donations. Blood Battle has highlighted the first weeks of November leading up to the day the schools face off on the football field every year since 1981.
Ohio State lost the Blood Battle last year by just eight donations. So far Ohio State has won 14 Blood Battles, and Michigan has won 20, with one year resulting in a tie.
