LAS VEGAS (AP) - The mayors of Las Vegas and Denton, Texas have struck a bet on Wednesday's Heart of Dallas Bowl.
If UNLV loses the game, Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman will wear a North Texas shirt to an upcoming City Council meeting and pay $100 to the winner's athletic department.
If North Texas loses, Denton Mayor Mark Burroughs will wear a UNLV shirt to his council meeting and pay up to UNLV.
The New Year's Day matchup at Cotton Bowl Stadium will be UNLV's first bowl game since 2000. The Mean Green is playing in the postseason for the first time since 2004.
