Some things are bigger than sports.

Today, despite team allegiances, we are all Tyler Trent fans.

Trent is a Purdue student, and probably the most passionate Boilermakers fan on earth, currently battling osteosarcoma, a bone cancer.

He's terminal, and doesn't know how much time left, but he's not missing the game tonight.

You can watch Trent's emotional story above and when the ball kicks off tonight, listen for the Purdue fans to chant "cancer sucks!" in place of the typical "IU sucks."
