89-year-old identical twins are Colorado football superfans

Peggy Coppom and Betty Hoover might be the most loyal fans in Colorado football history. The 89-year-old identical twins began attending Colorado games in 1940 when they were attending Boulder High School, just down the street from the University of Colorado campus.

As Pac-12 Networks' Lewis Johnson explains in the above report, Coppom and Hoover have been season ticket holders since 1958 and plan on celebrating their 90th birthday on Nov. 1 when the Buffs take on Washington at 10 a.m. PT/11 a.m. MT on Pac-12 Networks. Here's hoping the superfans see a better result than Colorado's 40-37 2OT loss to UCLA Saturday afternoon.
