Governors wager on OU-Texas game

The Red River Rivalry is being waged in more places than the Cotton Bowl.

Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry and Texas Governor Rick Perry are also getting in on the competition.

They have made a friendly wager on Saturday's much-anticipated football game between the Oklahoma Sooners and the Texas Longhorns.

The governor whose team comes up short will donate cases of steaks to an organization that has helped people impacted by Hurricane Ike.

The top-ranked Sooners will meet the fifth-ranked Longhorns in the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. Both teams are undefeated.

Henry says he believes Saturday will mark the Longhorns' first loss of the year. Perry says he looks forward to watching the Longhorns knock the Sooners out of their number one spot.
