KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The bets continue to roll in Friday and Kansas City is a 3-point favorite against the New England Patriots for Sunday's AFC Championship game.

Red Bridge Elementary School got in on the action and Friday, the stakes were high.

It's a friendly wager between Red Bridge and Potter Road Elementary School in Framingham, Massachusetts. The principal of Potter Road is a Patriots fan, but his wife is a Chiefs fan and Red Bridge alum.

"We are supposed to be sharing our Kansas City spirit with him today and they are sharing their New England Patriots spirit with us today," said Rachelle Hamrick, Principal, Red Bridge Elementary School.

The schools sent tweets back and forth Friday, both showing their team spirit.

"I don't think they're going to be more spirited. The principal, I'm not sure if he really knows who he went up against," said Hamrick.

When students go back to school on Tuesday, one school will be rocking the other teams colors from head to toe.

Red Bridge is betting on the Chiefs and hoping Potter Road will look more like Chiefs Kingdom next week.
