Mayor’s annual wager on Iron Bowl game

ALABAMA (WIAT) — The Iron Bowl may be a fierce rivalry on the gridiron, but it’s much friendlier outside the stadium. Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox and Auburn Mayor Bill Ham have a wager on the game.

The mayors each bet $100 on the game and the money will benefit local charities.

If Alabama wins, Ham will make a donation to the Tuscaloosa Pre-K Initiative. If Auburn upsets the Tide, Maddox will donate to the Food Bank of East Alabama.

The annual wager has been going on since 2005.
