BATON ROUGE – Governor John Bel Edwards says an LSU win in Saturday's game against Bama is a sure thing, and he’s willing to wager a precious commodity on his prediction.

Edwards used Twitter to contact Alabama’s Governor, Kay Ivey with a friendly wager- if the Tigers don’t beat Bama, he’d be willing to hand over some of Louisiana’s finest seafood, from Tony’s.

The Alabama governor was quick to reply that she'd be willing to wager a basket of... pecans. 

While most are sure the Tigers will win, it might not be a bad idea to send Governor Ivey a gift from Tony's Seafood.  

After all, when one loses the biggest game of the year, one should at least have some of the south's finest seafood for consolation... not a basket of pecans.
