Tusculum College is hoping to defeat the Carson-Newman Eagles this week, but not by notching yardage and points, but by banking units of donated blood. Medic Regional Blood Center will be on campus and in the community as well as at the Tusculum College Morristown location collecting much needed blood donations.
In addition, Carson-Newman will be holding its own drives in effort to pump up the friendly competition to meet a need in the community and region.
The schedule for the Medic unit will be Wednesday, November 10, at Niswonger Commons from 9 a.m.-6 p.m.; at the Davy Crockett Travel Center (195 Van Hill Road) from noon to 6 p.m., and at the Tusculum College Morristown site from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
”This is annual tradition that really meets a need in our region,” said Cody Greene, coordinator of development and alumni relations for Tusculum College. “It doesn’t take much to punch up the rivalry with Carson-Newman, but with the Blood Drive Bowl, the communities are the real winners.”
The winning school will be announced during halftime of the Tusculum College-Carson-Newman football game set for Saturday, November 13, at 1:30 p.m. at Pioneer Field.
