Outback Wager


 Des Mioines, IA (AP) — A pair of Governors make a bet on a bowl game
  Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal have made a friendly wager over who wins the Outback Bowl.
The governors announced Tuesday that food from their respective state may be sent to food banks in both Iowa and Louisiana. The game Wednesday in Tampa, Fla., will help determine if it’s pork or seafood.
If the Iowa Hawkeyes beat the LSU Tigers, Jindal will donate 100 pounds of Louisiana seafood to a food bank in Iowa and another 100 pounds to a food bank in Louisiana. If the Tigers win, Branstad will donate the same amount to the same food banks. Except the food will be pork from Iowa.
The governors say the wager is aimed at helping the hungry in both states.
