WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Tom Coburn is set to pay off a bet to Florida Sen. Ben Nelson this afternoon.
Coburn is to sing "Rocket Man" to Nelson because Florida beat Oklahoma 24-14 last week for the BCS championship.
If OU had won Nelson would've had to sing "Oklahoma!" for Coburn.
Nelson chose "Rocket Man" because he's a former astronaut who flew on the space shuttle Columbia in the 1980s.
Nelson spokesman Dan McLaughlin says the senator looks forward to settling the bet in good spirit and with a sense of humor.
