Governors Wager on Big Game

By  | 

It's not just sports teams that will have bragging rights after Saturday's big clash between the Buckeyes and the Wolverines. The Michigan and Ohio governors are getting in on the act, too.

Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm promised Thursday to send off a University of Michigan sweat shirt, Gerber baby food, Faygo pop, Jiffy Mix and a selection from Zingerman's Delicatessen in Ann Arbor if the No. 2-ranked Wolverines fail to take down No. 1-ranked Ohio State.

The basket of goodies will be donated to charity.

If the Buckeyes fall, Ohio Governor Bob Taft will send Granholm a basket containing Ohio food products, including chocolate buckeyes.
