Kentucky Still Leads Big Blue Crush Competition

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Generous blood donors have rolled up their sleeves this week and pushed Kentucky to a 1,947 to 1,635 lead over Tennessee in the 29th annual Big Blue Crush.

“Cat fans have proved all week that they are definitely the best fans in the country. Thanks to everyone who has given during Crush. We urge others to step up to help Kentucky patients tomorrow and help bring home another win,” said Martha Osborne, Kentucky Blood Center’s Executive Director of Marketing and Recruitment.

Big Blue Crush, which continues through Friday, is the yearly blood battle between Kentucky and Tennessee fans and Kentucky Blood Center (KBC) and Medic Regional Blood Center in Knoxville.
