Who would win between football and basketball? Lacrosse and tennis? Golf and volleyball? We’ll never have a definitive answer, but with the Cardinal Athletics Giving Challenge, we level the playing field so that the varsity sports can compete against each other.

In this multi-day challenge, you can help your favorite teams compete for glory and prizes. The top three men’s teams and the top three women’s teams win generously donated challenge gifts.
