Chicken wings on the line; UB loss loses Bishop’s bet

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Unfortunately for Buffalo, a UB loss Friday means a West Virginia man will much on a Buffalo specialty — chicken wings.

Western New York Episcopal Bishop William Franklin made a bet that his UB team would beat West Virginia Episcopal Bishop Mike Klusmeyer’s WVU team. The bet? A box of chicken wings.

Now that the Bulls are defeated, Franklin said he’s going to be making good on his gift.

“I will send Bisohp Mike a box of chicken wings because as we all know, there is no point to getting wings anywhere else in the world,” Franklin said.

The Bulls loss was hard to swallow for many western New Yorkers; many said their NCAA brackets took a hit at the loss. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
