The American Red Cross has recently announced that blood donations are at the lowest levels they have been in 15 years. Appeals to the public have provided a temporary stopgap, but have not eliminated the need. The situation is critical, and there is an ongoing emergency need for donors. Please donate if you are eligible, even if you never have before. It is a very rewarding experience and you can save up to three lives every time you donate.

Welcome to Blood Battle at the University of Michigan! Blood Battle is an annual blood drive competition between Ohio State and the University of Michigan that takes place in the weeks leading up to the Game.
The final score of the 2011 edition of Blood Battle was:
UM = 2628 OSU = 2402
Thanks to everybody who made this year’s version of Blood Battle a success! We have now beaten them 4 years in a row, and we will look to make it 5 years in a row next fall!
Our focus now turns to the 2012 Blood Battle! This past winter during the Face-Off Blood Challenge, we collected 1,281 pints of blood, and we are very grateful for those who volunteered their time or donated during Face-Off!
