Governors bet on bowl game

LITTLE ROCK (AP) _ A Cotton Bowl bet between Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Oklahoma Gov. Frank Keating will determine which governor hosts the other for a special hunt.

If the Razorbacks win, Huckabee and Keating will spend a day hunting quail in Oklahoma. If the Sooners win, Huckabee and Keating will hunt ducks in Arkansas.

The two teams meet New Year's Day in Dallas.

It will be Oklahoma's first Cotton Bowl appearance. Jan. 1, 2000, the Razorbacks defeated Texas at the Cotton Bowl and Huckabee won a meal of beef ribs from former Texas Gov. George W. Bush.

Both Huckabee and Keating plan to attend Tuesday's game.

``It will be 'sooie pig' for the Sooners come New Year's Day,'' Huckabee said.

Keating disagreed.

``I can promise Gov. Huckabee the Sooners are mad and hungry. That's not a good combination if you're a slow-moving hog,'' he said.
