Yarmuth, Barr bet local bourbon on UK-UL game

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The two congressmen who represent the districts that are home to the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville are betting on their basketball teams with another Kentucky tradition - bourbon.

Democratic Rep. John Yarmuth of Louisville and Republican Rep. Andy Barr of Lexington said Wednesday they are wagering locally distilled Kentucky bourbon on Friday night's Sweet 16 game between the two schools, whose teams also happen to be the two most recent NCAA champions.

In a news release from Yarmuth's office, Barr said he expects the Kentucky Wildcats to win the game since they beat Louisville earlier in the season. Yarmuth, however, points out the Cardinals' leading stats and coach Rick Pitino's undefeated Sweet 16 record.
