Congressman Alex X. Mooney (WV-2) and Congressman Sam Graves (MO-6) Place Friendly Wager on Saturday’s Division II Championship Game

WASHINGTON D.C. – Congressman Alex X. Mooney and Congressman Sam Graves have placed a friendly wager on the outcome of the Division II Championship football game. Congressman Mooney’s Shepherd University Rams are taking on Congressman Graves’ Northwest Missouri State Bearcats.

“I look forward to seeing Congressman Graves proudly wear a Shepherd University football jersey on January 5th. In the highly unlikely event that Shepherd loses, I have agreed to wear Northwest Missouri State University gear the first day that Congress is back in session,” said Rep. Alex Mooney.

“Despite retirements, adversity, and constant turnover, Northwest has been the mark of consistency in college football over the past few decades,” Rep. Sam Graves said. “I’m looking forward to watching them continue their Division 2 dominance in Kansas City tomorrow, and especially to seeing Congressman Mooney wearing Northwest football gear in the Capitol next year.”

Alex X. Mooney represents West Virginia’s Second Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. He is a member of the Budget and Natural Resources Committees.
