Today in College Football America History – Sept. 15

Ralphie

Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Sept. 15. 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 stayed fairly close to home by heading west from the Nashville area to Martin, Tennessee. He saw a battle of teams from different divisions and different home states. The disparity was undeniable as the host Skyhawks rolled to a 63-0 win.

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb started the day off in Tennessee to see the host Lynx take on the Stags from California in a non-conference skirmish. Rhodes pulled off a 21-17 win, but Webb was especially excited about the nightcap in Mississippi.

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb took advantage of a rare opportunity to see his alma mater, Texas, play close to his home in the Nashville area. After shooting a game in Memphis earlier in the day, he made the trip south to Oxford and take in The Grove and all the great gameday atmosphere Ole Miss has to offer.

Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox pretty much had the full plate of college football come to him on this Saturday. Cowboys Stadium, which is now AT&T Stadium, hosted the third day of the Lone Star Football Festival, which was ideal for Cox since he lived in Dallas at the time. This game was the only one that day that included a non-Lone Star Conference team, Valdosta State.

Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox got to see former powerhouse Texas A&M-Kingsville play in person for the first time. But it was the Buffaloes who ran roughshod over the Javelinas, 40-10, on that afternoon. WTAMU went on to make it all the way to the Division II semifinals that season.

Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox saw the Wildcats and Texans wrap things up for the Lone Star Football Festival, which lasted three days and included six games, including a high school contest on Friday night. Neither the Wildcats nor Texans play at the Division II level any longer.

Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins made his second trip to Lubbock and Jones AT&T Stadium to see these former Southwest Conference rivals battle in Hub City. His five-hour drive each way was well worth it, as the Red Raiders outlasted the Cougars in a 64-49 shootout. A shootout at Texas Tech? No way.

Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox checked off a smaller-school stadium he had been wanting to see a game in for years. Even better, he saw a rivalry game at Marv Kay Stadium in beautiful Golden, Colorado. Plus, he had a second game on tap for later in the day. It was a win-win.

Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox loves to see interesting non-conference match-ups whenever possible. This one more than fit that bill, with the Wildcats making the long road trip to Boulder to battle the Buffaloes. Cox also got to shoot photos of Ralphie’s run, which should be a bucket-list experience for any college football fan.

The University of the South (also known as Sewanee) held off their guests from Texas, 28-20.
