Madison – Governor Scott Walker and Michigan Governor Rick Snyder offered up a friendly wager today in anticipation of the Wisconsin Badgers taking on the Western Michigan Broncos in the Cotton Bowl on Monday, January 2.

“The Badgers have played a great season, and even though the Western Michigan Broncos are undefeated, thus far, I am confident the leadership of the Badger seniors and Coach Chryst will guide the Badgers to victory in Texas!,” Governor Walker said.

Governor Walker bet two Wisconsin staples, cheese and bratwursts. Governor Snyder wagered products from Arcadia Brewing Company and Sweetwater’s Donut Mill, both of Kalamazoo.
