Tampa mayor loses bet over USF game, pays price this morning

A friendly wager between Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn and Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer must have seemed like a good idea at the time.

Buckhorn was banking on the University of South Florida continuing its winning ways against the University of Central Florida Knights when the two met for their football game on Nov. 29 in Orlando. After all, the Bulls were unbeaten in the rivalry.

End result: Bulls 20, Knights 23.

So don't blink when you see Buckhorn out on the corner of Franklin Street and Kennedy Boulevard in downtown at 11:30 this morning. The UCF flag will be ceremoniously raised over Old City Hall and Buckhorn will don a UCF Knights jersey and wave at cars.
