U.S. Reps. Terri Sewell (D-AL) and Robert Aderholt (R-AL) received their lunch Wednesday from a friendly bet with Reps. Nikema Williams (D-GA) and Buddy Carter (R-GA) over the SEC Football Championship Game on Dec. 2

Sewell, a Selma native, and Aderhoff received meals from Chick-Fil-A after Alabama prevailed 27-24 to win the SEC title and secure a spot in the College Football Playoff.

Congratulations to the Tide on their 30th SEC title!” Sewell said. “I want to thank our Georgia colleagues for being good sports and donning some Alabama apparel on the House steps. Congressman Aderholt and I can confirm; Victory really does taste better with a side of chicken!”

Sewell issued a challenge to Reps. from Michigan, who Alabama plays in the Rose Bowl on New Year’s Day.

“Let’s see if we can find any Michigan colleagues brave enough to bet against the Tide,”  Sewell said.
