Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards proposed a friendly wager against Georgia Governor Brian Kemp ahead of the SEC Championship game on Saturday.
Edwards in a message on Twitter to Kemp put up some of Louisiana's best seafood from Tony's Seafood in Baton Rouge.
Edwards says that he is confident he wont have to cover the bet as the LSU Tigers will be hoisting the SEC trophy on Saturday.
"Go Tigers," Edwards said concluding the message to Kemp.
Georgia Governor Brian Kemp responded to that wager. The governor is putting up a basket of Georgia Grown goods.
Kemp says that they look forward to keeping that basket at home to share with their friends as he is confident the Bulldogs will win.

Edwards wagered the same bet with Alabama Governor Kay Ivey in early November for the LSU-Alabama matchup in Tuscaloosa.
LSU won that game.
