The Badgers take on Kentucky in a 2014 NCAA Tournament national semifinal game on Saturday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX.  The game is scheduled to start at 7:49 p.m.  It will be broadcast on TBS.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin and Kentucky's governors are putting their state's best beer and bourbon on the line in a friendly wager over the outcome of Saturday's Final Four game.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is offering up an array of Wisconsin beer, bratwursts, and cheese. Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear is betting a fully stocked Kentucky bourbon bar that the Wildcats will best the Badgers.

Walker says the Badgers have the momentum and skills to tame the Wildcats, while Beshear says he looks forward to grilling Wisconsin brats after Kentucky wins.

The two teams meet Saturday night in Arlington, Texas, for the chance to play for the national championship next week.
