"If I can beat cancer, you can beat Wisconsin. Go Bucks."

No matter how many people are doubting Ohio State right now, one young cancer survivor still has faith in Cardale Jones and the Buckeyes. 

Jones—Ohio State's third-string quarterback—will be making his first career start against the Wisconsin Badgers in the Big Ten Championship Game on Saturday. Injuries to Braxton Miller and J.T. Barrett have forced Jones into action.

A lot of people have jumped off the Ohio State bandwagon since Barrett suffered a broken ankle this past weekend, but this kid doesn't see any reason as to why Jones can't lead the Buckeyes to a victory—and possibly a playoff berth.
