Iowa governor makes good on LSU championship bet with pork donation

The wins keep coming for LSU women’s basketball.

With the Tigers’ national championship win over Iowa, they also secured a win for Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards, who had made a good-natured bet with Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds before the game.

Because LSU came out on top, Reynolds is making good on the bet, sending a dozen pork chops to Edwards and 1,250 pounds of pork to Louisiana food banks.

If the Tigers had lost, Edwards had put Louisiana boudin on the line. A state speciality, boudin is made from a blend of pork, onions, peppers, seasoning and cooked rice.

After LSU claimed its first national title in program history, with star Angel Reese leading the charge for the Tigers against Caitlin Clark and the Hawkeyes, Edwards tweeted: “Can’t wait for Louisiana red beans and rice with fried Iowa pork chops! Geaux Lady Tigers!”
