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.

Gov. Stitt replied shortly after, accepting the bet. He wagered Oklahoma's official state steak, the ribeye, and some steak rub.

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.
