Governor Whitmer, Washington Governor wager on College Football Playoff National Championship

LANSING, Mich. -- With only three days remaining before the Michigan Wolverines and Washington Huskies take the field to determine the 2024 College Football Playoff National Championship, the governors of each state came together for a little friendly wager ahead of Monday's matchup.

Earlier this week, Michigan's Governor Whitmer called Washington Governor Jay Inslee to place the bet.

“Michiganders and college football fans across the nation will enjoy watching the Michigan Wolverines take on the Washington Huskies in the College Football Championship,” said Governor Whitmer. “I’m confident the Wolverines will be the Victors on Monday, and I’m happy to wager Governor Inslee some Michigan-made products. Go Blue!”

According to the Governor, she has wagered a pack of Haze and Blue IPA from Big Lake Brewing in Holland, Michigan. The Hazy IPA features Citra and Mosiac hops and real blueberries.

Governor Inslee put up a case of wine from the Naches Heights Vineyard in Yakima, Washington.

“I’m sure our Huskies will come out on top,” Inslee said. “By the time Penix gets done with the Wolverines, your governor’s next State of the State address will be titled ‘Fix the damn secondary!’

The game kicks off from Houston, Texas on Monday, Jan. 8 at 7:30 p.m.
