Along with the Whiteout, Saturday is also Donate Life Day at Morehead State Football, and representatives from the Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates (KODA) will be on hand to distribute information and t-shirts as well as sign up individuals for organ donation.

Morehead State hosts Butler at 1 p.m. ET.

In addition, recipients and family members of organ donors will be honorary game captains. They include Joe Tenyer, father of MSU head coach Rob Tenyer (kidney recipient), Morgan McCalvin (pancreas recipient) and Christina Emory (family member of organ donor).

"This is such an important cause," said Rob Tenyer. "It saved my father's life. Please consider becoming an organ donor if you are not already."

KODA is dedicated to saving lives through organ and tissue donation and transplantation. KODA was formed to establish a statewide educational and procurement network. It is an independent, non-profit organ and tissue procurement agency. KODA serves 114 counties in Kentucky, four counties in southern Indiana and two counties in western West Virginia.
