There are so many great stories that come from the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry and tonight, we have another one to share with you.

A few weeks ago we told you about a boy named Grant Reed. The 12-year old Buckeye fan was fighting cancer in a Columbus hospital.

Grant decided to name his cancer "Michigan" because he wanted to beat it so badly.

And he did.

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer even stopped in to visit with Grant during his chemotherapy.

Grant's dad Troy Reed played in the Ohio State marching band and had this to say about Michigan's generosity.

"It's getting hard to keep my dislike for them because they've been so classy and unbelievable to us. But it won't be hard to cheer for the Buckeyes," Troy said.
