After being hampered all week by bad weather, Kentucky had its biggest donation day of the week Friday in the annual 'Big Blue Slam' blood drive.

Florida won the annual competition 1,744-to-1,502.

Despite the loss, the Kentucky Blood Center is going into February with a strong blood supply for the nearly 70 hospitals it serves.

The overall competition between Kentucky and Florida is now tied at 3.
