Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Aug. 26. 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?
2017: Pima (NJCAA) at Trinity Valley (NJCAA)
The third game of the 2016 season for the CFA staff took place at Bruce Field in Athens, Texas, as Trinity Valley hosted Pima. The game was the fourth for the CFA staff in Athens, but the first time our staff saw Pima, a program that no longer exists after the state of Arizona’s juco programs shut down after the 2018 season.
2017: South Florida (FBS) at San Jose State (FBS)
Our publisher went to the west coast to start the FBS season as the Spartans hosted the Bulls, the latter of which featured the USF coaching debut for Charlie Strong. Also in attendance for that game? MC Hammer. Yes, the one and only.
