Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards and Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt have made a friendly wager ahead of tomorrow's Peach Bowl game between LSU and Oklahoma.
Gov. Edwards tweeted on Friday about the wager, saying, "I'm not worried about covering because @LSUfootball is going to win." He wagered some seafood from Tony's Seafood.
How about a friendly wager on Saturday’s Peach Bowl, @GovStitt? Though I’m not worried about covering because @LSUfootball is going to win, I’m willing to put up some delicious Louisiana seafood from @Tonys_seafood in exchange for some ribeye steaks. #GeauxTigers #lagov #lalege pic.twitter.com/rVVbOPFdeg— John Bel Edwards (@LouisianaGov) December 27, 2019
Gov. Stitt replied shortly after, accepting the bet. He wagered Oklahoma's official state steak, the ribeye, and some steak rub.
@LouisianaGov Edwards, you’re on! I’ll wager Okla’s official state steak - the ribeye - & @OKCattlemen’s steak rub for the @CFAPeachBowl game between @OU_Football and @LSUfootball, but I know I won’t have to pay up. Looking forward to some @Tonys_seafood! #BoomerSooner https://t.co/6An0qNTRdD pic.twitter.com/mgs2DxIiPP— Governor Kevin Stitt (@GovStitt) December 27, 2019
Edwards recently proposed a bet against Georgia Governor Brian Kemp before the SEC Championship game against the Bulldogs. He also bet against Alabama Governor Kay Ivey in November for the matchup between the Tigers and the Crimson Tide.
LSU won both of those games.
