— With the Longhorns and the Oklahoma Sooners football game on Saturday, governor Greg Abbott made a barbecue bet with the rival state’s governor Mary Fallin. If UT loses, Abbott will send over a parcel of Railhead BBQ (located outside of Fort Worth). If the Sooners lose, Fallin will donate meals from Oklahoma's Head Country Bar-B-Q to Austin’s Capital Area Food Bank. Mayor Steve Adler bet Franklin Barbecue on the Longhorns’ first game of the season, which they lost.
