UPDATE: MSU and Penn State battle it out for blood donations

UPDATE (11-10-15) – The MSU – PSU Blood Challenge is continuing and the Spartans are holding a big lead at the halfway point. As of today, MSU leads in donations 465-399. There’s still time to schedule a donation at any number of blood drives in East Lansing.

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – Michigan State versus Penn State, many say it’s a big rivalry on the field but starting Monday the two schools will prove for the 22nd straight year that rivalry stands true off the field, but for a good cause.

Both schools will be taking part in the 22nd annual MSU-Penn State Blood Challenge.

All current and former students, as well as faculty and fans are encouraged to roll up their sleeves and donate blood.

The competition, which started in 1994, has brought in more than 72,000 donations.

To donate, just make an appointment either online or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS.
