Today in College Football America History – Sept. 10

Western Kentucky Hilltoppers

Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Sept. 10. 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.

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb paid a visit to Floyd Stadium in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, to see the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders host the Georgia Tech Yellowjackets, one of those rare nights when a Group of 5 school was able to host a Power 5 school.

Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins made the drive south from his North Texas home to Austin, Texas, to see the University of Texas host the BYU Cougars in a non-conference showdown. Gameday on the 40 Acres is a sight, especially when Royal Memorial Stadium is full of fans in burnt orange cheering for the Longhorns. Texas ended up winning the game.

Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox took in a non-conference game between the Houston Cougars and the North Texas Mean Green in Denton, Texas. It was an auspicious day for the Mean Green, who moved into their new stadium, Apogee Stadium, which was a long struggle to get built. The fantastic new venue was a serious upgrade over Fouts Field, the program’s former home. The game was a bookend for Cox, who attended the final game at Fouts Field the fall before.

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb was at Houchens Industries–L. T. Smith Stadium in Bowling Green, Kentucky, to see the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers host the Louisiana Tech in a Conference USA contest. Of course, that meant we had to spend some time with Big Red, WKU’s famous mascot. That also meant seeing thousands of WKU fans waving their red towels. It’s one of our favorite places to meet on the road.

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb tried something ambitious on this day in 2016. He decided to cover three games in one day (and the last game was a doozy). Anyway, Webb’s day started at Carl Smith Stadium in Wise, Virginia, as the UVa-Wise Highland Cavaliers hosted the Notre Dame (OH) Falcons.

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb made his next stop the home of Emory & Henry College in Emory, Virginia, as the Emory & Henry Wasps hosted the Brevard Tornados at Fred Selfe Stadium. But it had to be a quick stop so that Webb could get to his third game of the night.

Hokes, Volunteers and college football fans poured into the speedway and set a college football attendance record of 156,990.
