It's a bloody rivalry, so the state's two top football teams want to take it a step farther and ask their fans to donate blood.

The 33rd annual Carolina-Clemson Blood Drive, nicknamed the Blood Bowl, kicks off today and continues through Friday at locations across the state. Students, faculty, staff, alumni, and fans are encouraged to participate by giving a pint of blood to support their school.

During its run, the blood drive has collected more than 110,000 pints of blood in South Carolina.

The American Red Cross said the donations critical this time of year, since blood donations typically decline during the holidays.

To find out where to participate, contact the Anderson Red Cross at 864-225-8666.
