TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- The governors of Florida and Alabama have upped the ante on the outcome of the upcoming Southeastern Conference championship game.
The Sunshine State's Gov. Charlie Crist has agreed that if the Gators lose to the Crimson Tide on Saturday, he'll send Alabama Gov. Bob Riley a box of Florida oranges. If the Gators prevail, Riley will ship over a rack of ribs from the famous Dreamland Barbeque in Tuscaloosa.
The highly anticipated game between Alabama (12-0) and Florida (11-1) takes place in Atlanta. It's being billed as a showdown between a team known for its power and one famous for its speed.
