Bleed MAIZE and BLUE to beat OSU! - Royster Harper


This November marks the 31st annual Blood Battle between the University of Michigan and Ohio State University. This competition extends the athletic rivalry beyond the field, as students, faculty and staff donate pints of blood to save lives. This year, the competition begins on Nov.1 and ends on Nov. 16, and we are hoping to exceed last year's tremendous success.

You can make a difference! One donation has the potential to save up to three lives. During last year's Blood Battle victory over Ohio State, the Wolverines collected 2,628 pints, and, in total, enough blood was collected to possibly benefit over 15,000 people.

Ford Features Men's Rowing in a 'My Ford' Article

In Michigan, they understand hard work. This is the home office of Big Ten football and the American auto industry. Still, the commitment of this rowing team stands out. This is a “club” squad, meaning there are no athletic scholarships. The kids are walk-ons who pay an annual fee of about $2,500 for the privilege of pulling an oar.
