Missouri college student wins date with tennis star in Super Bowl bet

Willard RiveraFeb 07, 2017

Bouchard would have been in confident mood with the Falcons cruising to what seemed a certain victory with a 28-3 lead in the third quarter of the game.

She looks shell-shocked in a photo she tweeted Monday.

Bouchard confirmed Monday afternoon she'll make good on her wager with 20-year-old John Goehrke. When an enterprising fan asked her to go on a date with him if the Patriots came back and won, she cheerfully agreed.

Fast-forward a couple of hours later and the Patriots pulled of the miracle to beat the Falcons 34-28 in overtime.


One courageous fan made a decision to test his luck and make the best kind of bet - one that you can't lose.

A user with the Twitter handle punslayintwoods responded hopefully "If the patriots win we go on a date?" Go to school in Missouri.

That last Tweet is a lesson lots of people were reminded of last night.

Eugenie Bouchard learned the hard way - never bet against Tom Brady.
