BATON ROUGE – Iowa Gov. Terry E. Branstad and Louisiana Gov. Piyush "Bobby" Jindal made a friendly wager on the Outback Bowl aimed at helping feed the hungry both states.

The 2014 Outback Bowl featuring the University of Iowa Hawkeyes and the Louisiana State University Tigers was played on Jan. 1 in Tampa, Fla.

LSU won 21-14, so Branstad will donate 100 pounds of Iowa pork to a Louisiana food bank and another 100 pounds of Iowa pork to an Iowa food bank. Had Iowa won, Jindal would have done the same with 100 pounds of Louisiana seafood.

"I am thrilled to make this friendly wager to benefit the hungry in both states," Jindal said. "It is always a little sad to see the end of the college football season but I am very proud of this LSU Tigers team."
