When it comes to college football, nothing makes the game more fun than a little friendly wager between competitors.

Georgia officials and their Texas counterparts are putting their money where their mouth is while cheering on the Bulldogs and TCU's Horned Frogs.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott threw down the gauntlet with Georgia Gov. Kemp on Twitter Monday morning.

If Georgia wins, Abbott will have to send its fellow Southern state BBQ and cold drinks from Lone Star Beer.

Kemp fired back that he'd wager some chopped pork and Brunswick stew from Fresh Air BBQ in Jackson, Georgia.   

"Tell them to fire up that smoker, Governor. Our @GeorgiaFootball Bulldogs are bringing home that trophy tonight," Kemp tweeted.

Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Tyler Harper also made a bet with his fellow official in Texas.

If Georgia wins, Texas will deliver him some Texan Waygu steaks.

If TCU wins, the Peach State will be sending Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller a bushel of - of course - peaches and blueberry cobbler.

"I look forward to chowing down on that stake when my Georgia Bulldogs beat those Horned Frogs on Monday night," Harper said. 

Georgia (14-0) could become the first school to repeat as champs in major college football since Alabama a decade ago, and the first to go back-to-back in the nine-year history of the four-team playoff.

The Frogs are the biggest underdogs in the history of the CFP title game, getting 12 1/2 points, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, and facing a far more talented team — at least by the recruiting rankings.
