CLOVIS, California (KGPE) – There may be competition in the stands but the city of Clovis has gained some fans! Minnesota Golden Gopher fans, nearly 150 of them, pregamed at 559 Beer.
They are in town for Saturday’s big game against Fresno State. They’re called the “traveling gophers,” and are a group of mostly retired alumni who travel together to nearly all the Minnesota away games.
They’ve spent the past four days in the Central Valley and can’t say enough nice things about their time here.
“Clovis should really understand something. You have a fabulous place for people to come and have an experience,” said Gopher fan Steve Urban.
