Texas senators pay off friendly NDSU football bet with Conrad, Hoeven

BISMARCK (AP) — North Dakota Sens. Kent Conrad and John Hoeven have collected on a friendly bet they made with Texas Sens. Kay Bailey Hutchison and John Cornyn on the outcome of the Football Championship Subdivision title game last month.

It pitted North Dakota State against Sam Houston State, and NDSU came out on top 17-6.

Hutchison and Cornyn on Tuesday presented Conrad and Hoeven with Texas pecan pies and ice cream.

The North Dakota senators had wagered some bison steaks.

Conrad and Hoeven called it a "sweet victory in more ways than one."
