Xavier head basketball coach Chris Mack grew up in Cincinnati and is a big fan of the Bengals, while his graduate assistant, Joe Sullivan, cheers for the New England Patriots.

They made a Twitter bet before their favorite teams met Sunday night, and after the Patriots 43-17 victory, Mack has a new avatar for the next week in the form of coach Bill Belichick.
