Tyler Trent Wants Your Help In Predicting One Last Upset

Tyler Trent asks Purdue football fans to do the "Kinnick Wave" during game against Iowa.

By now, you've likely heard Tyler Trent's story. The Purdue student and superfan, who is suffering from osteosarcoma - a form of bone cancer - and is considered terminally ill, has been the face of this college football season. Trent, who has been profiled on ESPN numerous times this season, correctly predicted that Purdue would upset Ohio State back in October.

This week, Trent was flown down to the Music City Bowl in Nashville by Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay. He's expected to be in attendance when the Boilermakers take on Auburn in their final contest of the year.

But Trent has another big initiative he is working on. Friday, he announced that he's currently writing a book - his biography - titled The Upset.

Trent's goal is to raise $1,000,000 for cancer research. He's asking for help in predicting "one last" upset.

At the moment, you can pre-order the book. It's unclear when it will be released. Update: It'll be released in March of 2019.

Trent enlisted the help of John Driver - and the foreword is written by ESPN's Scott Van Pelt.

Trent has been an incredible inspiration these past few months. But it's clear that his impact will be felt long after the 2018 college football season.
