Colorado State University may have bested the University of Colorado in football this year, but CU exacted bloody revenge last week: Students and faculty at the Boulder campus won the annual Blood Bowl Championship, a blood-drive contest between the two schools, by donating 271 units of blood.

CSU donated 237 units, said Julie Scott, spokeswoman for the Bonfils Blood Center of Denver, which runs the event. That makes CU the winner — and the recipient of a yet-to-be-ordered trophy.

CU’s win is a bit of a comeback. CSU won the blood-drive crown in 2007 and 2008.
