Kentucky, Iowa Governors Make Friendly Wager

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Forty pounds of premium Iowa pork - that's what Kentucky's governor stands to win if the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers defeat the Drake Bulldogs in Friday's NCAA Men's Basketball tournament.

Iowa Gov. Chet Culver and Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear announced the friendly wager on Wednesday.

While Culver put up the Berkridge Pork, from Sioux Center, Beshear's wager was a Corvette windbreaker from Bowling Green, Ky., where Chevrolet Corvettes are made and where Western is located.

Culver says he looks forward to presenting Drake coach Keno Davis with the windbreaker from Kentucky.

On the other hand, Beshear says he's looking forward to a number of pork dinners in the near future.
