TULSA, OK -- While Sooner fans are craving a win in the BCS Championship, a Tulsa restaurant has a meal riding on an OU victory.

Rib Crib was founded in Tulsa, but its oldest franchisee is in Florida.  They've bet a catered dinner for their local Boys and Girls Club chapters on the outcome of the game.  The chain's Tulsa CEO actually has ties to both teams.

"Bret Chandler, the father of Rib Crib's founder, played for the University of Florida for two years before going on to the NFL, so that just adds a little excitement to the wager," said Rib Crib's Brandon Manly.

Manly says both franchises plan to make good on the meals, win-or-lose.
