PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The governors of South Dakota and North Dakota are betting $125 in a charitable contribution over this weekend’s Dakota Marker game.

The South Dakota State University Jackrabbits are taking on the North Dakota State University Bison at the Fargodome in Fargo at 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

Should SDSU win, North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple will make the donation to South Dakota Cribs for Kids.

If the Jackrabbits lose, South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard will make a contribution to Habitat for Humanity-Northern Lights Chapter.

The governors agreed on the bet amount in recognition of North Dakota’s and South Dakota’s 125th statehood anniversary, which is Sunday.

NDSU defeated SDSU 20-0 last year in Brookings, South Dakota. The Bison finished with a 15-0 record and currently have a 32-game winning streak.
