Notre Dame
and the University of Alabama are taking their beef to a new level -- TMZ has learned, the mayors of both college towns have made a friendly wager in honor of the BCS National Championship ... and a whole lot of BBQ goodness is at stake.

If the Fighting Irish win -- Tuscaloosa mayor Walt Maddox will send a heaping portion of coma-inducing grub from Dreamland Bar-B-Que to a rep for South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Maddox has also agreed to donate money to South Bend Big Brothers Big Sisters.

But if 'Bama wins -- Buttigieg has agreed to send gourmet chocolates from the South Bend Chocolate Company ... and will donate to the Tuscaloosa Tornado Recovery Fund.

We're not suggesting either team would throw the BCS Championship on January 7 -- but BBQ and chocolate are awesome.

Just sayin'.

Bama will mop the floor with them. Then Bama will use that same mop to put down a seal coat and 3 or 4 coats of wax to finish the beat down they are going to do on ND. It won't even be close.

That area of Indiana has some of the WORST food that I've ever tasted. Great candy shops though. So chocolate is an appropriate prize from that area.

I love this! It's a shame that the Fighting Irish won't get to try Dreamland BBQ because it is AMAZING! Nevertheless, Tuscaloosa is looking forward to Notre Dame's gourmet chocolates. Roll Tide y'all!

I was thinking-maybe it's time for me to get my 15 minutes of fame. I'm going to sue Notre Dame for their racist icon. Stereotypical-little angry irish man, dressed as a leaprachan (of COURSE) with fists raised. He's probably drunk too! You know how we Irish love to get liquored up and fight, dressed like wee people! Look out-I'm calling my lawyer!
