Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Sept. 12. 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?
2013: Mississippi Delta (NJCAA) at Itawamba (NJCAA)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb took advantage of the opportunity to see football under the Thursday night lights in Mississippi. The host Indians, who Webb saw play against Kilgore as a college student more than 20 years earlier in the Shrine Bowl, knocked off the Trojans, 13-10, in a MACJC North Division opener.
2015: Stephen F. Austin (FCS) at TCU (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins made the short drive across the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex to see his alma mater, SFA, take on TCU in a non-conference contest that featured an awful lot of purple. It was the second all-time meeting on the gridiron between the Texas universities.
2015: Jacksonville State (FCS) at Auburn (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox started the day with a beautiful drive from Atlanta to Auburn at a jam-packed Jordan-Hare Stadium. It was the first game of a doubleheader for him on that beautiful September day. The Gamecocks gave the Tigers all they could handle before falling in overtime.
2015: Tulane (FBS) at Georgia Tech (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox left the Jacksonville State-Auburn game early to cross time zones and get back to Atlanta for his first game at Bobby Dowd Stadium in the heart of downtown Atlanta. The Ramblin’ Wreck dismantled the Green Wave in non-conference action.
2015: Middle Tennessee (FBS) at Alabama (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb made his way down from the Nashville area to hollowed college football ground at Bryant-Denny Stadium to see one of his alma maters, Middle Tennessee, battle mighty Bama. It was the first game of a doubleheader for Webb that day.
2015: Huntingdon (D3) at Birmingham-Southern (D3)
