October 20, 2018 was just another normal Saturday in college football—or so it seemed. Amid all the matchups discussed on ESPN that day, it was a special video featuring the harrowing story of Tyler Trent—along with his bold, yet accurate, prediction that Purdue would upset Ohio State—that captured the hearts of millions. The Upset chronicles so much more than just an inspiring battle against the seemingly impossible opponent of osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer. A brilliant young statistician and sportswriter, Tyler faces his own mortality, and his life reflects the remarkable eternal upset only experienced in faith, family, and authentic community.
