Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Sept. 6. 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?
2012: North Greenville (D2) at Tennessee Tech (FCS)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb made the short drive to Tucker Stadium in Cookeville, Tennessee, as Tennessee Tech hosted North Greenville. The Golden Eagles took the win, 42-14, giving them their second straight victory of the young season. It would end up being their last win until a November victory over UT Martin near the end of the season.
2013: CCSF (CCCAA) at Diablo Valley (CCCAA)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb went out to the west coast to meet some friends and take in some California Community College action. CCSF (or the City College of San Francisco) is one of the state’s top community college football programs, but for this weekend Webb caught the Rams on the road against Diablo Valley.
2014: Kilgore (NJCAA) at Georgia Military (NJCAA)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb put together a two-game Saturday on this weekend. First, Webb drove to the small town of Milledgeville, Georgia, the home of Georgia Military Academy, as the Bulldogs took on the Kilgore Rangers in non-conference action. GMA is a regular non-conference opponents for teams that play in Texas, while the Bulldogs play as an independent. It was the yearbook staff’s first trip to Milledgeville.
2014: Furman (FCS) at Mercer (FCS)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb wrapped up that Saturday with a short drive over to Mercer, Georgia, to see the Mercer Bears host the Furman Paladins. The Bears were hosting their first Southern Conference game of the season and ended up losing to the Paladins, 25-20. The game was important for one reason. A photo from that game ended up on the cover of the 2015 College Football America Yearbook.
2014: Incarnate Word (FCS) at Stephen F. Austin (FCS)
Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins and director of editorial content Chuck Cox made their way back to the alma mater, Stephen F. Austin, to see the Lumberjacks host the Incarnate Word Cardinals. The Cardinals started their football program in 2009 as a Division II independent, followed by three seasons as a member of the Lone Star Conference. In 2013 the Cardinals made the move to FCS, first as an independent followed by membership in the Southland Conference. The game represented the Cardinals’ first conference game, but they lost to SFA, 38-3.
2015: Alabama State (FCS) at Tennessee State (FCS)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb has been to Nissan Stadium several times. The stadium is the home of the Tennessee Titans, the partial home to the Tennessee State Tigers and the home to some neutral sight college games. For Tennessee State the trip to Nissan Stadium was the season opener, as they took on the Alabama State Hornets. Tennessee State won the game, 24-14. The game was one of two for the Tigers at Nissan Stadium, while the rest of their home games were at Hale Stadium, also in Nashville, Tennessee.
