UofSC wins 31st annual Carolina-Clemson Blood Drive

The University of South Carolina has earned its eighth consecutive win over Clemson University in the 31st annual Carolina-Clemson Blood Drive.

From Nov. 16-20, students, faculty and staff from both campuses donated blood to the Red Cross to show support for their schools. UofSC now holds a 17-14 lead over Clemson in the drive.

UofSC will be awarded the blood drive trophy at the football game against Clemson on Saturday, Nov. 28.

This year’s event resulted in 6,217 donors presenting to give blood. Carolina supporters totaled 3,554, while Clemson supporters totaled 2,663. Over the past three decades, the universities have donated over 100,000 pints of blood.

Eligible donors can still show their Gamecock or Tiger pride and receive a commemorative Carolina-Clemson Blood Drive T-shirt by attempting to give blood now through Nov. 28 at the American Red Cross Blood Donation Center at 2751 Bull St. To make an appointment, download the American Red Cross Blood Donor App, call 1-800-RED CROSS or visit the Red Cross website.
