With College GameDay in Lincoln, Nebraska for today's epic showdown between the Buckeyes and Cornhuskers, LeBron James decided to issue a friendly bet to Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

James is a known fan of the Buckeyes due to his ties with the Ohio community. As for Union, she's a Nebraska native and a die-hard Huskers fan.

Before Ohio State and Nebraska battle on the field tonight, the four-time MVP went on Twitter to get his trash talk started early.

He tagged Wade and Union in his post, saying "I love you guys and I know you guys are SUPER EXCITED today but this won’t end well for you guys! #GoBucks P.S. Small/Big Bet?"

Check it out:

It'd be gutsy of Wade and Union to bet on Nebraska, especially since its a major underdog against Ohio State.

Union already made the headlines for her amazing gesture on Twitter. She asked her fans which jersey she should wear on Saturday when she makes her picks.

Christian Gaylord, an offense lineman for the Cornhuskers, asked Union if she'd wear his father's jersey. His father tragically passed away last Friday.

It's not too surprising when you consider her kind personality, but Union said she'd be honored to wear Scott Gaylord's Nebraska jersey.

Fans can watch Union make her picks later today on College GameDay.
