Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Sept. 11. 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?
2010: Wyoming (FBS) at Texas (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox stepped into Darrell K. Royal Memorial Stadium in Austin, Texas, for the first time as a member of the CFA staff to cover the Longhorns’ non-conference affair with Wyoming. It would be the first of two Texas-Wyoming games the staff would cover in the first few years of the publication, with the other coming in Laramie, Wyoming, at the highest (in terms of elevation) college football stadium in the land.
2014: Louisiana Tech (FBS) at North Texas (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins was back at Apogee Stadium in Denton, Texas, to see the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs face the North Texas Mean Green in Conference USA action. The Mean Green are used to hosting mid-week games, and this Thursday night game made for a national TV audience was no exception. Teams like LA Tech and UNT use those mid-week games to spotlight their programs and to further recruiting efforts.
