Bowl game bet

BOISE – Gov. Jim Risch has placed a friendly wager with Oklahoma Gov. Brad Henry on the outcome of the Fiesta Bowl, in which Boise State will take on the Oklahoma Sooners on New Year’s Day. “All Idahoans are excited about this game against Oklahoma and are confident that the Broncos will prevail against this legendary team,” Risch said in a statement. “I am very happy to put up some of our state’s best products. I know, however, that Gov.-elect (Butch) Otter will be collecting on this wager.” Henry was also confident in the outcome of the game. “I have unwavering confidence that Coach Stoops and our Sooners will make Monday a triumphant one for the Crimson and Cream,” he said in a statement. “Boise State is an excellent team, but I plan to kick off the new year with another OU victory.” The governor whose team comes up short will donate a basket of goods from their state to a charitable organization of the winning governor’s choice. The Idaho basket will include 10 pounds of Idaho’s Famous Potatoes, four filet mignon Kobe beef steaks from Snake River Farms, and an IPOD and memory stick that use memory chips made by Micron Technology in Boise. Kick-off for the 36th annual Fiesta Bowl is set for 5:30 p.m. Monday.
