Meat, Jerseys Riding on Football Game

South Dakota and North Dakota public officials have made wagers on Saturday’s football game between SDSU and NDSU.

The football game on Saturday between South Dakota State and North Dakota State in Fargo, ND is being wagered on by elected officials from the two states.

No, there’s no point spread or over-under with these bets.

The governors, Jack Dalrymple of North Dakota and Dennis Daugaard of South Dakota, are betting meat. Really.

Dalrymple will give Daugaard a basket of Cloverdale meats if SDSU wins, and Daugaard will put up a buffalo steak dinner if NDSU wins.

North Dakota Senator John Hoeven and South Dakota Senator John Thune, meanwhile, are wagering football jerseys, with the Senator from the losing side agreeing to wear a jersey from the other team for a day.

Neither Daugaard nor Thune is an SDSU graduate. There’s no word on the alma maters of the North Dakota officials.
