“This is normally where I come before I go to any football game,” said Laci Baker, UT student.
“We are selling thousands of jerseys and thousands of polos. I mean, it’s amazing what goes on through here,” said Cheryl Phifer, president & CEO of University Co-Op.
What’s adding to the sales? The team’s recent success.
