Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon and Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin are placing a wager on the Missouri-Oklahoma State matchup in the Cotton Bowl and a food pantry in one of the two states will be the beneficiary.

Nixon and Fallin are wagering food products from their home states that will be donated to a food mission in the winning team's home state.

Fallin graduated from OSU and Nixon graduated from Missouri.

Fallin's wager includes a basket with 50 pounds of food donated by the Made in Oklahoma Coalition. Nixon's bet includes a spiral sliced city ham and a smoked turkey from Burgers’ Smokehouse located in California, Mo.

The Cowboys and Tigers play at 6:30 p.m. Friday.
