AP: Kaine loses friendly wager over Tech's Orange Bowl loss

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Governor Tim Kaine has lost a friendly wager after Kansas beat Virginia Tech 24-21 in the 2008 Orange Bowl.

Kaine's office has said that if the Hokies won, Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius (seh-BEEL'-yuhs) would send Kaine an assortment of Kansas beef. But if the Jayhawks won, Kaine will send along a Virginia ham.

While their high-powered offense was stymied most of the night, the Jayhawks came up with three interceptions and beat the Hokies. The turnovers led to 17 Kansas points.

It was a bittersweet finish for the Hokies, who revived campus spirits this season following the April 16th massacre that left 33 people dead, including the gunman.
