It's time for Vol fans' annual battle with the hated Gators, and were not just talking about the competition on the football field!

The 8th annual UT vs UF Blood Drive Competition is taking place this week, UT fans are encouraged to donate blood to beat the Gators. The blood drive is held every year during the week leading up to the SEC battle on the gridiron.

Medic Regional Blood Center is asking all eligible donors and Vol fans to roll up their sleeve and give for the home team!

"This friendly competition helps us increase our inventory and have fun with the football rivalry at the same time," explains Christi Fightmaster.
