As hard as it was for Kentucky Wildcats fans to watch the Wisconsin Badgers spoil their team's perfect season, at least most of them didn't also lose $6,000 in the process.

Drake, who has become one of Kentucky's most notable fans, put down a wager with another rapper, The Game, on Saturday's contest.

The Game has no real connection to Wisconsin, but he says he bet on the Badgers for a few reasons, including the fact that the school's name starts with a W and that its colors are red.

Of course, $6,000 is pocket to change to both men, as The Game is worth around $22 million and Drake is worth more than double that.

Wisconsin won, 71-64, and Drake paid up.


Drake delivered the money in an envelope branded with his October's Very Own logo:


The Game's Wisconsin Badgers face off against Duke on Monday night in the national championship game.
