Gabrielle Union and baby Kaavia James Wade are in Nebraska for ESPN’s College Gameday. The mother and daughter pair touched down in the midwestern state ahead of Saturday’s matchup between Ohio State and the hometown Huskers.
To kick off her first visit to Nebraska, Kaavia donned a Runza Clovers outfit and channeled her mom’s Bring It On character.
“Bring it!!!!! Thank you @runzarestaurants for @kaaviajames Runza Clovers outfit to kick off her very 1st visit to #Nebraska,” Gabrielle captioned under the nostalgic photo of her daughter.
Union, an Omaha native and a Husker fanatic, has been named as the celebrity picker for ESPN’s ‘College Gameday’ and will join its broadcast team on the set Saturday morning. This means that the actress, along with GameDay analysts, will try to pick the winners of the most talked-about football games.
