Associated Press: North Dakota, Montana senators make friendly wager on game

BISMARCK, N.D. — North Dakota U.S. Sen. John Hoeven and Montana U.S. Sen. Steve Daines have placed a friendly wager on the outcome of Saturday’s playoff football game between North Dakota State and Montana.

Hoeven is betting North Dakota-made Dakota Growers pasta, and Daines is putting Montana-made Moose Drool beer on the line.

NDSU is the four-time defending Football Championship Subdivision champions. The Bison host Montana in an FCS second-round game Saturday afternoon at the Fargodome. The game is a rematch of the season opener, won by the Grizzlies 38-35 in Missoula.
