Purdue superfan Tyler Trent died from a rare form of bone cancer on Tuesday. He was 20-year-old. Purdue’s athletic department issued a statement last night saying "While there are no words to ease the hurt at times like this, we hope some comfort can be found in knowing what an inspiration Tyler is to our student-athletes, coaches, staff and fans," the statement read. "The entire Purdue Athletics family has been touched by his courageous battle, positive spirit and unwavering faith. Tyler was the embodiment of a true Boilermaker who will live on in each of us." Trent was honorary bowl captain and went to midfield for the pregame coin toss on Friday when the Boilermakers lost to Auburn in the Music City Bowl after Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay flew Trent and his family to Nashville.
