~ DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal made a friendly wager over who wins the Outback Bowl.
The governors announced that food from their respective state may be sent to food banks in both Iowa and Louisiana. The game Wednesday in Tampa, Fla.,helped determine if it's pork or seafood.
If the Iowa Hawkeyes would have defeated the LSU Tigers, Jindal would've donated 100 pounds of Louisiana seafood to a food bank in Iowa and another 100 pounds to a food bank in Louisiana. Since the Tigers won, Branstad will donate the same amount to the same food banks. Except the food will be pork from Iowa.
The governors say the wager was aimed at helping the hungry in both states.
