The Minnesota Gophers are taking on Georgia Tech in the Quick Lane Bowl Wednesday.
The football team will have a special group of fans cheering during the game in Detroit.
A KSTP crew caught up with some of the Travelin' Gophers at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Wednesday morning. Roughly 170 of them took a charter flight to Detroit.
Member Dorothy Erban said, "Goldy, the spirit squad, and the band will be there, too, so it will be a great Gopher gathering."
The Gophers had their final practice Tuesday ahead of Wednesday's big game. On Monday, the team also found time to give back to those in need by spending part of the day packing meals.
Kickoff for Wednesday's game is at 4:15 p.m. at Ford Field in Detroit.
