MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A St. Jude patient got the chance of a lifetime at the Memphis Tigers game against UCLA Saturday.

Wyatt Deel, in his white Tiger polo shirt, led the Tigers winning team inside Liberty Bowl.

As part of the Make a Wish Foundation, he got to be the honorary coach for the big game.

Wyatt was even on the field the entire game.

“It's awesome, very special, it's a once in a lifetime opportunity,” Wyatt said.

Wyatt said even though he's really a Mizzou fan, getting to do what he did meant so much to him.
