This year’s Big Blue Crush — the 35th edition of the annual competitive blood drive that pits Kentucky fans against Tennessee fans to collect blood for local hospitals for the Thanksgiving holiday — will take place Nov. 14-18.
Kentucky Blood Center leads the rivalry with Medic Regional Blood Center 19-14-1 despite last year’s loss. With Big Blue Nation’s unwavering support, KBC is hoping to win the competition for the third time in four years.
Blood donors will receive a “Football School” long-sleeve shirt. Additionally, all donors will be entered to win four tickets to the Kentucky vs. Louisville football game on Nov. 26 at Kroger Field.
