COLUMBIA (WACH)â?? Gov. Nikki Haley engages in friendly wager with Florida's Governor over Clemson/Florida St. game.
Haley, a Clemson grad. placed a friendly wager with Gov. Rick Scott of Florida on Saturdayâ??s college football game â?? a contest between two of the best football teams in the Atlantic Coast Conference and the nation. Kickoff is slated for 8:00 PM ET on Saturday in Tallahassee.
â??With college football season in full swing and two South Carolina teams ranked in the top 10, it was great to hear from my friend and fellow college football fan Gov. Rick Scott,â?? said Gov. Haley, who put a barbecue dinner on the line. â??When he called and started talking smack about the Clemson-Florida State game, I told him I had confidence in Coach Dabo Swinney and the Tigers, who represent our state well and make us proud, and I was happy to place a friendly wager on the game.â??
Gov. Scott bet Key Lime Pie that the Seminoles would win.
â??Our high schools, universities and NFL teams have proven time and time again that Florida is the number one state for football, and there is no doubt the Noles will win this weekend,â?? said Gov. Scott. â??I really appreciate Gov. Haley taking part in this wager and look forward to enjoying some BBQ from her great state.â??
