Virginia's governor, Bob McDonnell, has placed a friendly wager on Saturday night's game with Mitch Daniels, governor of Indiana, which is home to Butler.

If Butler wins, McDonnell will owe Daniels a Virginia hand-cured country ham. If VCU wins, Daniels will send a variety of duck products from Maple Leaf Farms in Milford, Ind.

McDonnell says he is confident the Rams will win the national title, and he says he's considering serving the duck at the governor's mansion when he has the team over to celebrate the season.

Tip off is at 6 p.m.
