Spartan Nation to honor cancer patient Tyler Trent during Purdue game

If you happened to watch Purdue‘s big win over Ohio State this past Saturday night on ESPN, there is a pretty good chance that you teared up at least once during the game.

During that game, the Boilermakers honored Tyler Trent, a Purdue student, and mega-fan who is currently in a very tough battle with bone cancer.

Tyler’s story was brought to everyone’s attention when ESPN’s College GameDay aired a segment hosted by Tom Rinaldi. During that segment, it was very clear that Tyler has a deep love for Purdue and that Purdue has a deep love for Tyler.

It is a tradition at Purdue that after each kickoff, Boilermakers fans yell, “Ooohhhh I-U Sucks!” But against the Buckeyes, to honor Tyler, they instead yelled, “Ooohhh Cancer Sucks!!!”

On Saturday, the Boilermakers will be in East Lansing to take on Michigan State and Spartans fans have decided that they too will honor Tyler Trent.

The Spartans tradition on kickoffs is to yell, “Go State!” on kickoffs, but thanks to a request started by Matt Sheehan of “The Only Colors,” that will change for Saturday’s game against Purdue.
