About

Beginning in 2003, Battle of the Valleys (BOV) has now become a long-standing tradition at Grand Valley State University. This friendly competition with our rival institution, Saginaw Valley State University, creates a connection between students, alumni, local businesses, and the surrounding community that builds up to the annual football game between GVSU and SVSU. The competition helps to develop a sense of Laker pride and motivates our students to unite behind a great cause. Each university picks their own local beneficiary to raise money for in this competition. For 2016, BOV runs from October 30th - November 5th.
