So what did we do on this day in College Football America Yearbook history?
2016: Arizona State (FBS) at UT-San Antonio (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins made the drive to one of our favorite cities, San Antonio, to catch the Roadrunners against a Power Five opponent in the Sun Devils at the Alamodome. The game was much more competitive than expected, as ASU scored 20 unanswered points to escape with a 32-28 victory.
2017: Louisiana College (D3) at Hardin-Simmons (D3)
Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins made a day of it in Abilene, Texas, starting with an American Southwest Conference opener between the Cowboys and the Wildcats. Hardin-Simmons won, 55-10, on its way to a 9-2 season that included just one conference loss.
2017: Houston Baptist (FCS) at Abilene Christian (FCS)
Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins capped off his day in Abilene by witnessing the first game at the beautiful new Anthony Field at Wildcat Stadium. The Wildcats did not disappoint the home fans, rolling past the Huskies, 24-3, in a Southland Conference contest. Anthony Field brought ACU football back to campus for the first time in decades.
2017: Coastal Carolina (FBS) at UAB (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox knew when UAB announced the return of the football program that he would have to go to a game at historic Legion Field. The perfect opportunity to do so came with the Chanticleers visiting the Blazers. It was the first of two games in Alabama that day for Cox.
2017: Colorado State (FBS) at Alabama (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox made his way from Birmingham to Tuscaloosa for his first game at Bryant-Denny Stadium and another interesting non-conference match-up. His good friend and College Football America Yearbook supporter, Paul Dunklee, also came to catch up and see his first Crimson Tide home game.
2017: Kentucky Wesleyan (D2) at Kentucky State (D2)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb was at it again with the tripleheaders. This time, he spent his busy day shuffling between stadiums in the Bluegrass State. First up was a non-conference battle in Frankfort, Kentucky. The home Thorobreds notched a 30-23 win over the Panthers.
2017: Point (NAIA) at Georgetown (KY) (NAIA)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb made his way to Georgetown for the second of three games in Kentucky in the same day. The Tigers rolled to a 25-7 non-conference victory over the Skyhawks on their way to a 9-2 season that included a playoff win.
2017: Lindsey Wilson (NAIA) at Union (KY) (NAIA)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb wrapped up his Kentucky tripleheader with a Bingham Tire Gridiron Bowl game in Barbourville. The Blue Raiders easily disposed of the Bulldogs, 68-26. Lindsey Wilson finished the season with an 11-1 record.
