Kelvin Benjamin wears Oregon jersey after losing Rose Bowl bet

Friday January 2nd, 2015

Carolina Panthers rookie Kelvin Benjamin is a proud Florida State Seminole while his teammate Jonathan Stewart hails from the University of Oregon, so the two made a friendly wager on Thursday's Rose Bowl with the loser having to don the other team's jersey.

As you likely know by now, Oregon beat Florida State quite handily, so when Benjamin showed up to practice as the Panthers prepare for their own playoff game on Saturday, he had a Ducks jersey waiting for him.

Benjamin may be down about Florida State's 39-point loss, but he still has some wonderful memories to look back on, as evidenced by his recent Instagram post of his game winning touchdown grab from last year's National Championship game.
