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
