On Friday, Governor Edwards made a friendly wager with Alabama Governor Kay Ivey on the outcome of Saturday's LSU-Alabama matchup in Tuscaloosa.
The governor's office says that Edwards wagered some fresh Louisiana seafood from Tony's Seafood in Baton Rouge while Ivey has put up Alabama's famous Priester's Pecans from Fort Deposit Alabama.

.@GovernorKayIvey how about a friendly wager on tomorrow's big game when my @LSUfootball Tigers take on the Alabama Crimson Tide? Though I know I won't have to cover, I'm willing to put up some fresh Louisiana seafood from @Tonys_seafood. Are you in? #lagov #LSU #GeauxTigers pic.twitter.com/CD6oPq0lV5— John Bel Edwards (@LouisianaGov) November 8, 2019

.@LouisianaGov I see your #LouisianaSeafood and I’ll raise you a basket of @PriestersPecans from Ft. Deposit, AL, although I know I won’t have to send those! I look forward to having a good fish fry when the Tide Rolls in Bryant-Denny tomorrow. #RollTide #alpolitics #alabamaFTBL pic.twitter.com/RrZy5B2VsT— Governor Kay Ivey (@GovernorKayIvey) November 8, 2019
