COLUMBIA — South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is betting some Lowcountry shrimp and grits that Clemson and South Carolina will win their bowl games next week.

Haley placed the friendly wagers Friday with her colleagues in West Virginia and Nebraska. The South Carolina Gamecocks face the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the Capital One Bowl in Orlando, Fla., on Monday, while the Tigers face the West Virginia Mountaineers in the Discover Orange Bowl in Miami on Wednesday

Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman put Omaha Steaks on the line. West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin put up a basket of goodies unique to his state.

Clemson is Haley’s alma mater. She says she’s confident the Tigers and Gamecocks will end their seasons with wins.
