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.
