Saturday, Sept. 28 update:
After Gabrielle Union took to Twitter to ask which Husker jersey she should wear for her ESPN College GameDay appearance, senior Huskers player Christian Gaylord responded.
His father passed away in a car accident last Friday. Gaylord said it would be an honor if she wore the jersey his dad wore to his games.
On Saturday, Union was spotted wearing the jersey. See the photo below.

When Gabrielle Union announced she'd be representing Nebraska on ESPN's College GameDay this Saturday, she wrote, "Now which @HuskerFBNation jersey do I rock on the show."
It appears she may have her answer.
Huskers player Christian Gaylord responded saying he's a senior on the team and his father died in a car accident last Friday. He told her it would be an honor if she wore the jersey his dad wore to all his games.
@itsgabrielleu I’m a senior on the team. I tore my acl this year and awaiting a medical redshirt. My father was killed in a car accident last Friday. You’re more then welcome to wear my fathers jersey he wore during my games. It would be an honor. pic.twitter.com/02d7q2AhEN— Christian Gaylord (@Big_Chris_65) September 26, 2019
Thursday night, Union responded saying "I would be honored!!" She tagged the football team to try to make it happen and used the hashtags: #ThereIsNoPlaceLikeNebraska #GBR #Home
