While the stakes are certainly high for Saturday's matchup between the no. 6 Florida Gators (7-1) and the no. 8 Georgia Bulldogs (6-1), the game's outcome is equally as important for the governors who represent each state.
Before today's game, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp made a friendly wager on social media, adding an extra twist to an already highly anticipated grudge match.
The bet: If Georgia loses, Kemp will have to venture down to the Everglades to hunt for pythons that have plagued the nature preserve.
"If the Florida Gators win, I'm going to ask Governor Brian Kemp to come down with me to the Everglades in South Florida to go on a hunt for Burmese pythons," DeSantis said on Twitter.
And if the Bulldogs win: DeSantis would travel to South Georgia to help hunt feral hogs who have plagued farmers' crops.
"When the Dogs win, like I think they will, I'm going to bring him up to South Georgia. We're going to go feral hog hunting," Kemp responded on Twitter.
“I know that wild hog sausage is a lot better than python,” said Kemp. “So let’s go Dawgs. Hunker down. We gotta get another one in Jacksonville.”
The gubernatorial bet adds a little extra spice to the top-10 matchup that kicks off on Saturday at 3;30 p.m. ET at TIAA Bank Field.
