For the third year in a row, Waffle House is putting a friendly "Waffle Wager" on a college football game of its choice. Last year, it was Auburn-Georgia, while in 2013 it was Alabama-Texas A&M.
This year, the match-up is Clemson-South Carolina, and either Clemson, S.C. or Columbia S.C. will receive free Waffle House based on the result of the game.
From Business Wire:
“You can throw out the records when the Tigers and Gamecocks take the field, and when you add in the Waffle Wager, it becomes an even bigger event!” said Walt Ehmer, Waffle House President and CEO. “Good luck to both schools, and like the old saying goes, ‘To the victor goes the waffles, coffee and hashbrowns.’”
Fans of the winning team will get the free Waffle House goodness at either a restaurant in Clemson, S.C., or Columbia, S.C. If Clemson wins the game, Royal Cup and C.H. Guenther will provide hashbrowns, waffles and coffee for the fans and if South Carolina wins, Basic American Foods will be stuck with the tab. The “payout” date, time and winning Waffle House location will be announced after the game.
In addition to the free hashbrowns, waffles and coffee, the winning university’s general scholarship fund will receive $10,000 to help further the education of its students.
Obviously, the Tigers are heavy favorites over the Gamecocks this year. But when free Waffle House is involved, anything can happen.
