Michigan’s coach has offered Grant Reed tickets to this year’s matchup between the two rivals in Ann Arbor. A Michigan spokesman confirmed that Hoke called Reed and his family Monday.

Columbus, Ohio, TV station WCMH reports the 12-year-old Reed finished his final chemotherapy treatment a couple weeks ago. Reed’s father, Troy, tells the station his son gladly accepted Hoke’s offer.
