Gov. Nikki Haley, Gov. Bob McDonnell place friendly wager on ACC football championship

Haley: "I'll bet some great South Carolina barbecue from Hudson's Smokehouse that Clemson will bring home the ACC championship."

COLUMBIA, S.C. – As the Clemson Tigers prepare to meet the Virginia Tech Hokies in Saturday's Atlantic Coast Conference football championship game, Governor Nikki Haley today made a friendly wager with Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell.

“It's been an incredible season for all of our great state's college football teams, but I'm a Clemson fan who's especially excited about the Tigers' run to the ACC title game,” said Gov. Haley. “So, I told my friend Gov. Bob McDonnell that I'll bet some great South Carolina barbecue from Hudson's Smokehouse in Lexington that Clemson, led by ACC Rookie of the Year Sammy WatkinsSammy Watkins

and head coach Dabo Swinney, will bring home the ACC championship.”

Gov. McDonnell put a Smithfield Foods' genuine Smithfield ham and a tin of Virginia Diner “Hokie Nuts” on the line.

“The Clemson Tigers are a formidable opponent but the Hokies’ offense, led by ACC offensive and overall player of the year running back David Wilson and the talented Logan Thomas are on a great run and show no signs of stopping,” said Gov. McDonnell. “This Hokie team is at the top of their game and they’re going to carry forward that momentum to the Tigers in the ACC Championship Game. I look forward to seeing the Hokies take their fifth ACC Championship in their eight years in the conference on Saturday – and afterwards, to enjoying some good South Carolina BBQ.”
