Wis., Ore. governors announce Rose Bowl bet

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The governors of Wisconsin and Oregon have placed a friendly wager on Monday's Rose Bowl between the Wisconsin Badgers and the Oregon Ducks.

   Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is putting up a care package of Leinenkugel's beer, Wisconsin cheese, a package of Andes mints produced in Walker's hometown of Delevan, and a bottle of blushing rose (roh-zay) wine from Wollerscheim Winery in Prairie du Sac.

   Should the Ducks lose, Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber (KITS'-hah-ber) will send a care package of Oregon products including craft beers, kettle chips, hazelnuts and smoked king salmon to Wisconsin.

   Walker is predicting a Badgers victory. He notes that Wisconsin has made a Rose Bowl appearance two years in a row.

   Both teams are 11-and-2 heading into the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif.
