A Brief History

2018 will mark the 16th consecutive year that students from Saginaw Valley State University and Grand Valley State University have seized the interest in the schools' football rivalry to compete in a charitable fundraising competition known as "Battle of the Valleys."

SVSU will be fundraising for the Barb Smith Suicide Resource and Response Network in 2018. This year’s Battle of the Valleys will be Sunday, October 21 through Friday, October 26. The winning school that raises the most money will be announced during halftime of the football game at SVSU on Saturday, October 27.

SVSU has won the fundraising competition for 10 consecutive years. A variety of entertaining fundraising activities make up the schedule for the week. Events will be announced very soon.
