The football team will host its third annual "Be the Match" bone marrow registry drive. Over the last two years, the drive has led to four donors matching someone in need of bone marrow.

The procedure requires a simple swab of cheek cells, administered by the Rhode Island Blood Center for its registry. Participants should be between the ages of 18 and 44, in good health and willing to donate to any person. There is no charge.
