DES MOINES, Iowa- Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds and Washington Governor Jay Inslee have agreed to a friendly wager, over the Alamo Bowl tonight.
Governor Reynolds says if the Washington State Cougers beat the Iowa State Cyclones, she'll send donated bacon and pork products to a food bank in Washington.
Governor Inslee has agreed to send Ivar's clam chowder to Iowa's Northeast Iowa Food bank if Iowa State wins the game.
“Both Iowa and Washington state are used to being No. 1 in agriculture - apples for Washington and corn, eggs and hogs for Iowa,” Gov. Reynolds said. “But only one state can be No. 1 in this bowl game, and I know our Cyclones, with an estimated 25,000 fans traveling to Texas to cheer them on, will bring home the win in the Alamo Bowl. Go State!”
“Iowa and Washington state share a lot in common including a land grant mission, a dedication to serving local communities and a love of football. After Friday, one key thing that will set these great states apart is a Cougar victory in the Alamo Bowl," Gov. Inslee said playfully. "A triumph over the Iowa State Cyclones would make this the most victorious season in WSU football history with 11 overall wins. Go Cougs!”
