Tee Higgins pays off Palmetto Bowl bet with Hayden Hurst
A bet is a bet and Tee Higgins had to painfully honor his with Cincinnati Bengals teammate Hayden Hurst on Thursday.
After Hurst’s alma mater, South Carolina, earned a 31-30 victory in the Palmetto Bowl over Clemson, Higgins had to wear Hurst’s old college jersey and even managed to do a little pose before walking off.

The friendly wagers between NFL teammates is still one of the great things about rival week. Higgins, a former standout at Clemson, wanted to remind all that he was undefeated against the Gamecocks during his college days.
Higgins and Hurst will be back on the same side Sunday when the Bengals host the Kansas City Chiefs.
