Alabama and Florida Governors issue friendly wager

MONTGOMERY –More than the SEC championship and national title hopes will be on the line this Saturday at the SEC championship game in Atlanta.

Alabama Governor Bob Riley and Florida Governor Charlie Crist have a friendly wager on the game. If the Crimson Tide rolls to victory, Governor Riley will receive a box of Florida oranges from Governor Crist. If the Gators somehow manage a win, Governor Crist will enjoy a rack of ribs from Dreamland Barbeque, courtesy of Governor Riley.

"I'm looking forward to receiving those oranges," said Governor Riley, an alumnus of the University of Alabama.  "Roll Tide!"
