Today in College Football America History – Sept. 13

Pitt Panthers

Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Sept. 13. 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 director of editorial content Chuck Cox had quite a weekend in Nashville that started with a trip to Vanderbilt Stadium. The host Commodores took on the Minutemen in a contest that wasn’t decided until the 1:08 mark of the fourth quarter. Vandy rallied to beat UMass in a non-conference affair.

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb is never one to shy away from attending three college football games in one day. In fact, it’s what he lives for each fall. That’s exactly what was on his plate that weekend in Florida, beginning in Miami with FIU taking on Pitt in a non-conference match-up on a sunny afternoon.

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb didn’t have to go far for the second game of his Sunshine State tripleheader. For this one, Webb shot photos at an NFL stadium as an added bonus. The Miami Dolphins and Miami Hurricanes share what is now Hard Rock Stadium, which has hosted several Super Bowl.

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb wrapped up a hat trick of a college football Saturday by heading north from Miami to lovely Boca Raton to see the host FAU Owls take on Tulsa. On that night, FAU Stadium’s field was named after Howard Schnellenberger, who coached the program’s inaugural team.

Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox wrapped up his day by visiting another stadium for the first time. After watching Vanderbilt play in Nashville, he made the short drive to Murfreesboro to see a rivalry game between WKU and MTSU at Johnny “Red” Floyd Stadium. It proved to be one of the most exciting games of the season, with the Blue Raiders hanging on for a 50-47 triple-overtime win. He caught the Cowboys and Titans in Nashville the following day.
