The Gophers have fewer than 400 tickets remaining for the season opener against TCU, senior associate athletics director Chris Werle confirmed Thursday.
The team is closing on its first home sellout since the 2013 regular season finale against Wisconsin. The capacity at TCF Bank Stadium increased to 52,525 last season with the Vikings coming on as tenants. Last year's season-high attendance was 51,241 for Purdue.
ESPN also announced that Dave Pasch, Brian Griese and Tom Luginbill will be the broadcasting crew for the Gophers/TCU game.
