Tampa, Florida -- It's the 'War on the I-4,' and Tampa is betting that its University of South Florida Bulls are going to beat Orlando's University of Central Florida Knights tonight, Nov. 29.

The City of Tampa announces Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn and Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer have placed a friendly wager on the USF-UCF game.

The terms are: the mayor of the losing team must wear the winning team's jersey and hoist the winning team's flag over City Hall for one day.

The two teams haven't played each other since 2008, but USF is unbeaten in this rivalry.

Tune in tonight to watch the game live on ESPN. Kick-off is at 8 p.m.
