Sasse bet a journalist that the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers would defeat the Iowa Hawkeyes in a game last November that Nebraska ended up losing, 40-10.

The Nebraska senator, who previously drove for Uber in his home state, donned Hawkeyes gear after losing the bet and live-tweeted about the encounters while driving Uber in Des Moines.

Sasse tweeted a picture with three young passengers saying, "These kids made me carry them through downtown Des Moines."

Sasse worked to promote his ride. 

And clapped back at some critics who had caught wind of his moonlighting gig on social media. 

He even had some political discussions along the way. 

Sasse debated "Larry the Cable Guy" over looking good in yellow during his shift. 

And met some other interesting characters along the way.
