Excellent news tonight. Thanks to a private plane trip set up by Colts owner Jim Irsay, Tyler Trent will be able to attend the Music City Bowl in Nashville on Friday afternoon:

With an assist from the Indianapolis Colts, Tyler Trent will be in Nashville, Tennessee, to serve as honorary bowl captain when the Purdue Boilermakersplay in Friday’s Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl.

Colts owner Jim Irsay flew Trent and his family to Nashville on Wednesday so they could be on hand for the game against the Auburn Tigers (1:30 p.m., ESPN, ESPN+).

Tyler’s story continues to be an inspiration, as he has gone on record as saying he was given only a few months to live near the start of the season. He is still going strong, however, and it is safe to say that he has inspired millions along the way.

Hopefully we have one more win in the tank for Tyler this season.
