Most friendly wagers on football games are innocent — the loser usually has to wear the opposing’s teams colors or perform the signature chant of the rival school.
But the bet Peter Burns and Chris Doering made on last Saturday’s LSU-Florida game had much higher stakes.
As a result of the Tigers’ 27-19 loss in The Swamp, Burns had to write and deliver a minute-long rap to the tune of Ice Cube’s “It Was a Good Day” live on the air Tuesday.
Gotta admit, @PeterBurnsESPN aka P-Breezy, did a great job making good on the bet we made last week. Thanks to @GatorsFB win over @LSUfootball we got to witness the birth of his rapping career this morning on the show. #SEC #Gators https://t.co/E0fCZMPWZR

Burns, a Baton Rouge native who serves as a studio anchor for the SEC Network, didn’t back down from paying up in an embarrassing way. He even earned the moniker “P-Breezy” from Doering, a former Florida receiver and current analyst who works alongside Burns.
We’ll update you if Burns decides to see how far he can take his rap career and drops a mixtape in the near future.
