Key lime pie is on the line as the Florida Gators take on the LSU Tigers in the College World Series finals.

In what has become an all-SEC showdown, Gov. Rick Scott tweeted Monday that he has made a friendly wager with his Louisiana counterpart, Gov. John Bel Edwards.

“If @GatorsBB wins, @LouisianaGov owes me some delicious Louisiana boudin sausage,” Scott tweeted. “In the unlikely event @LSUbaseball wins, I'll send @LouisianaGov some delicious@KermitsKeyWest Key Lime pie. Go Gators!”

Kermits is Scott's go-to for friendly sports wagering.

He sent pies from Kermits to then-South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley when the Gators fell in the College World Series to the South Carolina Gamecocks in 2011.

Florida State University's football championship in 2014 over Auburn brought Scott a gallon of Toomer's Drugs lemonade from then-Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley.

And Scott took home cheese curds from Ellsworth Cooperative Creamery and Haribo Gold-Bear gummi candy from Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker after the Gators topped the University of Wisconsin Badgers in the NCAA basketball tournament in March.

The best-of-three College World Series finals were scheduled to begin Monday night and continue through Wednesday, if a third game is necessary.
