COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ahead of the rivalry match between the Buckeyes and the Wolverines on Saturday, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer have placed bets offering their states’ famous treats as prizes. 

DeWine wagered cream puffs from Schmidt’s, black raspberry chip ice cream from Graeter’s, and chocolate-covered pretzels from Malley’s and buckeye candies from Marsha’s Homemade Buckeyes.

In return, Whitmer offered a gift package of cherry treats from Cherry Republic as her wager.

“With so much on the line in this year’s edition of The Game, Fran and I are very excited to see the Buckeyes kick-off on Saturday and continue their great rivalry,” DeWine said.
