Kentucky has been leading Tennessee all week long. The Kentucky Blood Center says numbers from Thursday show UK ahead by almost 1,000 donors.

The organization had over 500 fans donate just Thursday.

“We’re having a great turnout though we are here until 6 o’clock so we still need people to come out and help us beat Tennessee this year. We lost last year so we don’t want to lose again,” says Shera Molton, donor recruit specialist for the Kentucky Blood Center.

The blood center says every donation can save three lives and the blood supply from this drive will help keep the supply full, to last through the holidays.
