A part of ESPN "College GameDay" on Saturday morning was the story of Alabama football running back Najee Harris and 8-year-old Braxton Weidman. 

Weidman is an Alabama football fan and has stage 4 brain cancer. 

Alabama dedicated its 63-48 win against Mississippi on Oct. 10 to Weidman. 

Weidman asked Alabama football coach Nick Saban if he'd give the ball to Najee Harris, and against Ole Miss, Harris ran for five rushing touchdowns.
