Famous CU Buffs fan Betty Hoover passes away at 95 – The Denver Post

The University of Colorado has lost one of its greatest fans.

Betty Hoover, a long-time supporter of the Buffaloes, along with her twin sister, Peggy Coppom, has died at the age of 95.

Coppom and Hoover, known as “the twins” have been CU football season ticket holders since 1958 and have rarely missed a football or basketball game since first attending in 1940. They are often cheered by fans when they enter the CU Events Center together for games.

Betty and Peggy were born in Haxtun and their family moved to Longmont in 1939 and then Boulder in 1940. They graduated from Boulder High School in 1943 and continued to attend Panthers games over the years. Their brother was a part of football and basketball state championship teams at Boulder. The sisters had a combined seven children, all of which graduated from Boulder.

In 2018, they were honored at Boulder’s homecoming football game in 2018.
