If the Cal Bears win, Mayor Swearengin will send award-winning Fresno State wine and other Fresno State products such as olive oil, nuts, fruits and vegetables. If the Fresno State Bulldogs win, Mayor Lee will send Dungeness crab from Fisherman’s Wharf, Anchor Steam beer, Ghirardelli chocolates and Philz coffee.
