Gov. Nikki Haley was 3-0 in friendly wagers with other governors
The Clemson Tigers weren't the only ones to see a successful run come to a disappointing end during Wednesday's Orange Bowl loss to West Virginia. Gov.

Bob McDonnell and Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman during the past seven months, as South Carolina's college teams achieved unprecedented success. But Wednesday night, West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin finally got the best of Haley and will get to enjoy some Lowcountry shrimp and grits, thanks to the Mountaineers' 70-33 victory.

"I guess with the timing of this game and the location that it may keep some people at…
