Today in College Football America History – Sept. 16

Abilene Christian Wildcats

Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Sept. 16. 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 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.
