The LSU-Ole Miss rivalry digs deeper than the players on the field, and it often can divide families and friendships.
The Vitter brothers are powerful people, but have experienced the divide when it comes to the Magnolia Bowl. David is a U.S. senator from Louisiana, and his brother, Jeff, is the chancellor at Ole Miss. Naturally, David decided to put something on the line.

So some good-hearted social media embarrassment is also at stake when the Tigers and Rebels meet. David also threw in a little insult at the end, unsure of what Ole Miss even calls itself now.
David’s Twitter account frequently shows him retweeting LSU-related items, so he’s clearly a fan of the Tigers. Jeff has yet to respond to his brother’s offer.
