(LEX 18) – Lexington Mayor Linda Gorton should be all smiles on Saturday night after winning a bet with Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs.

Both Tweeted about the wager placed on the #5 Kentucky vs. #1 Tennessee basketball game.

The losing mayor of the hoops game has to take the winning mayor to lunch in the winner’s city, wearing the winning team’s jersey.

The Wildcats pummeled the Volunteers with a final score of 86-69, the Cats took control from the tip and maintained it the entire game.

Jacobs is a former WWE star who was elected mayor of Knox County in 2018.
