Last week, Purdue students and fans dropped the traditional “IU sucks” chant for Saturday’s game against Ohio State, changing it to “Cancer Sucks” to honor Tyler Trent, a superfan who is battling bone cancer.

Trent’s story has touched and inspired so many people around the Purdue community that students and fans wanted to show their support. And now, after a story on Trent and his battle aired on College GameDay and reached the entire college football community, another fanbase wants to incorporate the “Cancer Sucks” chant into their routine.

Saturday, when Purdue travels to Michigan State, Spartan students and fans will chant “Cancer Sucks” after kickoffs to honor Trent and all cancer fighters. Fans usually belt out “Go State” after kickoffs.

The initiative was launched by The Only Colors, a website dedicated to Michigan State athletics. It was also supported by the Michigan State football student section leaders. And, of course, Trent gave his full approval.

This is really awesome. And it’s tremendous to see B1G schools coming together for something bigger than sports.

Purdue and Michigan State go head-to-head at noon ET on Saturday in East Lansing. Both teams are 4-3 entering the matchup.

While you watch the game, be sure to listen for the “Cancer Sucks” chant. You can even join in from your home.
