Tuesday, December 31, 2013 | 5:44 p.m. CST

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

Fallin announced in a news release Tuesday that she and Nixon 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 Oklahoma State University and Nixon graduated from MU.

Fallin's wager includes a basket with 50 pounds of food donated by the Made in Oklahoma Coalition. Nixon's bet includes a sliced ham and a smoked turkey from a Missouri smokehouse.

The Cowboys and Tigers play at 7 p.m. Friday.
