OMAHA, Neb. (AP) A husband and wife in the eastern Nebraska town of Gretna have come forward claiming to have a winning ticket for a $122 million Powerball jackpot.

David and Erica Harrig say they have presented a ticket to an Omaha attorney that bears the winning numbers in Wednesday's Powerball drawing.

Nebraska Lottery spokesman Neil Watson said Saturday that he could not confirm that the Harrigs are jackpot winners, because they have not presented a winning ticket to lottery officials.

Another winning ticket was sold in Massachusetts, meaning the Harrigs would split the jackpot with the Massachusetts winner if the couple's ticket is verified.

The Harrigs told the World-Herald that they plan to take the lump-sum payout of $34.18 million when they claim the jackpot.
