Sac State, UC Davis Compete with Blood Drive before ‘Causeway Classic’

SACRAMENTO -- A little more than a month before the Causeway Classic football game between Sacramento State and UC Davis, the competition has already begun.

In what has become a friendly rivalry between the two schools to see who can donate the most blood, students from Sac State lined the University Ballroom this morning as they will for the next couple of days to beat out there Aggie rivals.

"It's a great motivator to help,"  Sac State student Jonatasya Griffith said.

In a couple of weeks students at UC Davis will get their chance to donate when BloodSource visits the campus.

This is the ninth year of the competition with each school splitting the bragging rights for the previous eight years.

A year ago, the two schools combined for more than 3,000 donations.
