U.S. Rep. Stephanie Murphy, whose district includes the University of Central Florida, has arranged a friendly wager with her counterpart in Alabama on the outcome of Monday’s Peach Bowl game between the undefeated UCF Knights and the Auburn Tigers.
If the Knights win, U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, whose district includes Auburn University, will have to deliver a bucket of Florida oranges to Murphy’s Congressional office in Washington D.C. while carrying a classic UCF football helmet.
If Auburn wins, Murphy, a Winter Park Democrat, must continue one of Auburn University’s richest traditions and “roll” the small oak tree from the Toomer’s Corner oak lineage on the lawn of the U.S. Capitol.
“Charge on!” Murphy declared.
“War eagle!” Rogers declared.
