Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards initiated the exchange by saying he’d be willing to bet some Louisiana boudin that coach Kim Mulkey and the LSU Lady Tigers would bring the National Championship back to Baton Rouge. Gov. Reynolds responded by saying she was betting Iowa pork that coach Lisa Bluder and the Iowa Hawkeyes could get the big win.
