Mayors make friendly wager on 'Sweet 16' NCAA game

(Press Release)

Ahead of Friday’s NCAA Sweet 16 match-up between the Texas Tech Red Raiders and the Purdue Boilmakers, Mayor Dan Pope of Lubbock and Mayor John Dennis of West Lafayette, Indiana announced a friendly wager on the outcome of the game.

Mayor Pope has wagered a Lubbock and Texas favorite, brisket from Tom & Bingo’s BBQ. Mayor Dennis has wagered a case of root beer from West Lafayette’s Triple XXX Family Restaurant, Indiana’s first and oldest drive-in.

“We look forward to a great game between the Red Raiders and the Boilmakers, but expect a Red Raider victory,” Mayor Pope said. “I appreciate Mayor Dennis’ sportsmanship and the opportunity to get to know a fellow leader in a community that is home to a major university.”

“Boiler Nation appreciates and respects Mayor Pope’s unbridled enthusiasm about the Red Raiders’ potential for advancement when they tangle with Purdue,” Mayor Dennis said. “Unfortunately, I believe his optimism will be challenged when our Boilers “whup-up” on the Red Raiders. I look forward to the game, and then enjoying a wonderful meal featuring some Texas style barbecue.”
