Governors wager on Saturday's Mizzou/Nebraska game (2:30pm on KAIT)

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Missouri-Nebraska game Saturday has

more at stake than the inside track to the Big 12 North division

title: candy, fishing lures and slabs of beef.

The office of Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman said Thursday that the

office of Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon asked whether Heineman wanted to

make a friendly wager on the outcome.

Sure, Heineman said.

Heineman's stakes: some choice cuts from retailer Omaha Steaks.

Nixon offered up Missouri black and gold candy representing the

Tigers' colors, a walnut candy bowl and some fishing lures.

Nixon says he's looking forward to comparing Nebraska beef to

Missouri-born Kansas City strip steaks.

Saturday's game in Lincoln is scheduled to begin at 2:30 p.m.

Central.
