COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - The mayors of Omaha and Council Bluffs have agreed to a friendly wager on Friday's football game between 17th-ranked Nebraska and Iowa.

Council Bluffs mayor and Hawkeyes fan Tom Hanafan and his Omaha counterpart, Jim Suttle, say the loser of the bet will help build new homes for Habitat for Humanity.

Hanafan and Suttle met Wednesday at the halfway point on the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge to make the bet.

Amanda Brewer, the director of Omaha's Habitat for Humanity, says the wager will help generate awareness for efforts by both cities to provide quality housing.

Nebraska won last year's game 20-7 in Lincoln.
