Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Aug. 25. The staff at the College Football America Yearbook has been attending and coverings games since 2010, even before we actually had a physical yearbook to sell. Our staff travels the country to cover anywhere from 50 to 70 college football games per season. So, we’ve accumulated many games, many photos and many memories. Each day, we’ll encapsulate those memories here and include links to our photos and game coverage that will help you take a look back, too.

So what did we do on this day in College Football America Yearbook history?
2016: Georgia Military (NJCAA) at Navarro (NJCAA)
Our staff has made its way down to Corsicana, Texas, quite a bit during our time on the beat. The start of the 2015 season was no exception, as the Bulldogs hosted another set of Bulldogs — Georgia Military College. GMC, an independent NJCAA program based in Milledgeville, Georgia, tends to serve as an early-season opponent for Texas-based jucos like Navarro.
2016: Lindsey Wilson (NAIA) at Cumberland (TN) (NAIA)
Our publisher started his season in Lebanon, Tennessee, as he saw the Cumberland Phoenix host Lindsey Wilson in the season opener for both teams. Nokes-Lasater Field is one of those consistent stadiums our staff has been to over the years and it’s a charming locale for a football game.
2018: Snow (NJCAA) at Trinity Valley (NJCAA)
Back to Trinity Valley to see the Cardinals. It’s one of those places that our staff tends to stop by each season. On this occasion, it was a battle of Top 10 teams, as No. 7 Trinity Valley hosted No. 3 Snow. The Cardinals took the win, but both teams put on quite a show, as Snow defeated TVCC, 56-43. Snow went 8-3 that season and reached the Graphic Edge Bowl.
2018: Hawaii (FBS) at Colorado State (FBS)
Out west, our publisher made our staff’s first trip to Canvas Stadium, the brand-new home of the Colorado State Rams. The contest was a Mountain West Conference opener for both teams, as Hawaii headed into the mainland and took the win from the Rams, 43-34. It was the start of a 3-9 season for the Rams, while Hawaii ended up going 8-6 and hosted LA Tech in the Hawaii Bowl.
