COLUMBUS, Ohio (WOIO) - Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine and Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer agreed to a wager on Saturday’s Ohio State-Michigan game in the form of pizza from their respective collegiate towns.

Michigan won last year’s game, known as “The Big Game”, with a final score of 42-27, knocking the Buckeyes out of playoff contention.

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, by a wager of pizza, root beer and creampuffs, was quick to accept the challenge.

Gov. Whitmer followed suit by way of adding Detroit-style pizza to the pot.

Ohio State and Michigan will face off in the classic, dating back to 1897, on Nov. 26 at 12 p.m. It is the first time in rivalry history the two teams are undefeated heading into their matchup.
