Gopher football team practices at TCO Performance Center

The Vikings welcomed PJ Fleck and company to their practice facility Tuesday.

EAGAN, Minn. — With a purple long sleeve shirt on, Gophers football coach PJ Fleck broke out the "SKOL Chant" as he took the field at the TCO Performance Center, the home of the Vikings.

Tuesday's practice in Eagan was a chance for the Gophers to simulate a road game and to also get ready for Saturday's spring game.

Many of the Gophers are Minnesota natives and grew up fans of the Vikings. Players like Carter Coughlin said they loved the facility and also the chance to compete on the same field as the Vikes.

Check out the video above to hear from Fleck and Coughlin and to see highlights from Tuesday's practice.
