Today, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds and Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb agreed to a friendly wager to highlight the upcoming Camping World Bowl game in Orlando, Fla., on December 28 between Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa and the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind.

Gov. Reynolds has pledged to send a selection of Iowa pork products from Lynch Family Farms in Waucoma, Iowa to the food bank of Gov. Holcomb’s choice if the Fighting Irish prevail. Gov. Holcomb has wagered a selection of dairy products from Indiana farmers to the food bank of Gov. Reynolds’ choice if the Cyclones are victorious.

“Gov. Holcomb is one of my favorite colleagues because he is a tireless advocate for Indiana agriculture and a passionate fan of his state’s NCAA football programs,” said Gov. Reynolds. “And I’m really going to enjoy sharing Indiana dairy products with some Iowa families after the Cyclones take down the venerable Notre Dame Fighting Irish on Saturday.”

“I love seeing the incredible work being done in Iowa by my friend Gov. Reynolds, who is always telling me about Iowa’s tremendous football teams,” Gov. Holcomb said. “Despite Iowa State’s strong season, we all know the historic Notre Dame program will send the Cyclones packing and provide some delicious Iowa pork products to Hoosier families.”
