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.

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
