WASHINGTON -

U.S. Senators Claire McCaskill (Mo.) and Amy Klobuchar (Minn.) today joined in a friendly wager on the Citrus Bowl game between the University of Missouri Tigers and the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers on New Year's Day in Orlando, Florida. Klobuchar wagered her trademark “frozen” dessert hotdish while McCaskill offered Buck's Tiger Stripe ice cream.

“Our Tigers are going to perform so well that the poor Minnesota Gophers are going to wish they'd never poked their heads out of the ground,” McCaskill said. “And I'm confident enough that I'm willing to wager Tiger Stripe ice cream produced by the best school of Agriculture in the country. Good luck to one of my besties in the Senate and her team - I'm afraid they're going to need it.”

“The Gophers brought their A-game this season under the inspiring leadership of Coach Jerry Kill, who has guided this great team all the way this year's Citrus Bowl in Orlando,” Klobuchar said. “While I know Senator McCaskill would enjoy a slice of my frozen hotdish, it wouldn't last long in that Florida sun, and I'm looking forward to celebrating a Gopher victory with some Missouri-made ice cream.”

Senator Klobuchar's “‘It's So Called My Hotdish Froze' Dessert Hotdish” tied for second place in the 2014 Minnesota Congressional Delegation's annual Hotdish Off. Senator McCaskill has said Buck's Tiger Stripe ice cream is “produced by the best school of Agriculture in the country.”
