Today in College Football America History – Sept. 19

Mount Union Purple Raiders

Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Sept. 19. 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.

The Warriors brought football back after a 44-year absence in 2001. But the return ended 17 years later when the school shuttered the program. On this day, ASU won, 56-0, to wrap up a full day of football for Postins.
