(CNN)On Saturday night, the Ohio State Buckeyes are going head-to-head with the Nebraska Cornhuskers, and there’s a lot at stake.Well, a lot of tacos.LeBron James challenged his friend Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade as well Wade’s wife, actress Gabrielle Union, to a bet, and the winner gets to pick where to go for Taco Tuesday.”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??” the four-time MVP said, tagging Wade and Union in his tweet.
“BIG BET… Winner chooses next #TacoTuesday location??” Union said in response.James, who is from Akron, Ohio, is a loyal Buckeyes fan. Union is a native of Omaha, Nebraska, and a passionate Cornhuskers supporter.Wade, who grew up in the Chicago area and retired from the Heat last season, had a much lighter approach to the bet.”Can we all just get along,” the 16-year NBA veteran jokingly tweeted.Union, who was a guest GameDay picker at ESPN’s College GameDay, made headlines earlier Saturday when she wore Cornhuskers offensive lineman Christian Gaylord’s jersey number.The jersey belonged to Gaylord’s father, who passed away in a car accident last week.
Gaylord responded to Union’s tweet asking which Huskers jersey she should wear to the GameDay show and offered his late father’s jersey.Ohio State is 6-1 all-time against Nebraska, and has not lost a game to the Cornhuskers since 2011.
