Pigs and pythons are on the line as the Gators vs. Bulldogs clash Saturday afternoon in Jacksonville.
After much teasing throughout the week that a gubernatorial bet was in the works for the gridiron clash between the 6th ranked University of Florida and 8th ranked University of Georgia, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp tweeted out videos of what they were putting on the line.
A UF victory means the governors would head to the Everglades to help hunt Burmese pythons.
“We need the help. We’re making progress. But I’d love to see the Gators win and Gov. Kemp come down there. And who knows, you may end up with a pair of python boots on the end of it,” DeSantis said in his video.
A Georgia win, meanwhile, sends DeSantis into Southern Georgia, where feral pigs are infesting area farms.
“I know that wild hog sausage is a lot better than python,” Kemp said.
Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m.
