The Ohio State University is looking for help from Buckeye Nation to save lives and beat “That Team Up North.” The 41st Annual Blood Battle between Ohio State and TTUN runs from Oct. 26 – Nov. 23, with a series of 48 blood drives in the campus area. The Wolverines have won each of the last four competitions.

All donors from the month-long event will receive a free Blood Battle T-shirt and will be entered to win a collection of other prizes.

All blood donated in Columbus benefits patients at the Wexner Medical Center. The blood donation process takes less than an hour to complete and can save up to three lives. For a complete listing of drives and to schedule an appointment, visit or call 800-485-6594. To expedite the donation process, you can complete the health history questionnaire online during the day of your appointment.
