Gopher Football Has First Sellout In Four Years
The Minnesota Golden Gophers are hosting their biggest game ever at TCF Bank Stadium. It is 8-0 vs. 8-0 and the fans are officially throwing their oars into the boat with P.J Fleck and the Gophers.
For the first time since 2015, TCF Bank Stadium will be sold out when Penn State visits Minneapolis. The Nittany Lions come in ranked #4 in the first College Football Playoff Rankings, while Minnesota is ranked #17. It is a big statement game for the Gophers, who can solidify their spot in the Big Ten and on the national level with a win.
Yes, the Gophers schedule has not been great. There isn't a doubt about it, but the sellout is a step in the right direction for Minnesota, who haven't really hosted a big game like this, that will have national attention.
The last sellout, in 2015, was a battle the Gophers lost to Wisconsin, 31-21. You will be able to hear the action on FUN 104.3.
