OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry and Missouri Governor Matt Blunt are making a friendly wager on Saturday's Big 12 Conference football championship between top-ranked Missouri and No. 9 Oklahoma. Each governor is wagering 12 products from his respective state on the outcome of the game, which is being played in San Antonio. Those products have not been determined.

Henry, who earned bachelor's and law degrees from the University of Oklahoma, said he has faith the Sooners will win.

``I am confident that Bob Stoops and the Sooners will triumph in San Antonio, and I look forward to sampling some of the finest goods that Missouri has to offer, courtesy of Governor Blunt,'' Henry said.

Blunt expressed similar confidence in Missouri.

``The Tigers are ready for this historic game with the Sooners and we are ready to chalk up another victory,'' said Blunt.

Missouri enters the game with an overall 11-1 record while OU's record is 10-2.
