The game is on for the Gators and the Buckeyes, and now for the governors of each team's state.
From his office telephone, Gov. Crist spoke to Ohio Governor-elect Tim Strickland, offering him a bet on the big match-up.
Strickland said, "I suggest that if you win, I will fly the Florida flag over the governor's residence for one day, and if Ohio wins, you fly the Ohio flag over your residence for a day."
Crist said, “I'll certainly fly it somewhere. If you win, that sounds like fun."
In addition Crist will send Strickland some Florida citrus if the Buckeyes win.
Strickland will send Crist some Ohio wine and Buckeye chocolates if the Gators win.
