WASHINGTON, D.C. Congressman Tim Ryan has agreed to a friendly wager with Congressman Randy Hultgren on tonight's Mid-American Conference Championship game at Ford Field in Detroit.
Ryan, D-Niles, represents No. 17 ranked Kent State University in Kent, and Rep. Hultgren, a Republican, represents No. 21 ranked Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Ill. The Kent State Golden Flashes will face the NIU Huskies at Ford Field.
The game begins at 7 p.m.
The terms of the wager decree the congressman representing the losing team will present the congressman representing the winning team with treats from his district. Ryan said he will offer a gift basket of gourmet goods from Kent's local bakeries and a Kent Displays Boogie Board.
"After the Golden Flashes beat the Huskies tonight, it will be my pleasure to sample the basket of Graham's Chocolate that Rep. Hultgren will be sending from Geneva, Ill.," Ryan said.
