Perry, Oklahoma governor bet beef

AUSTIN (AP) - Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Oklahoma Gov. Frank Keating have decided a side of
beef will go to the leader of whichever state wins this weekend's Longhorns-Sooners football battle.
The two announced Tuesday that the losing governor will donate a side of homegrown beef to the
winning governor. The beef will then be given to the home charity of the winning governor's choice.
Perry predicted a 34-14 University of Texas win. Keating predicted a 24-10 OU victory.
"This annual friendly wager between the governors of our two neighboring states helps boost state
pride and remind everyone on both sides of the Red River what terrific universities and football teams
we both have," Keating said. "And since this is my final OU-Texas game as governor, I intend to go
out a winner."
The game is scheduled for Saturday in Dallas.
