ESPN's College GameDay had a star-studded duo on the set today to give their college football picks as Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade are in Nebraska for today's game of the weekend.

Union is a Nebraska native and die-hard fan of the Cornhuskers. As for Wade, the former Marquette product has decided to support his wife's favorite team.

Prior to their picks on College GameDay, LeBron James sent a message to Union and Wade on Twitter. He told them that Ohio State would defeat Nebraska tonight.

During the final segment on College GameDay, Union fired back at James when making her pick for the Akron-UMass game.

Union had an interesting reason for picking Akron, as she said "That's the only win LeBron's going to get today."

James, of course, will be rooting for Ohio State against Nebraska tonight.

Wade let Union do the trash talking this morning. We'll find out soon enough if she'll be right for choosing the Cornhuskers over the Buckeyes.

Nebraska enters this showdown as the underdogs, but Scott Frost should have his team ready for the challenge.

Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. ET from Memorial Stadium. The game will be broadcast on ABC.

Will Nebraska pull off the upset against Ohio State?
