Today in College Football America History – Sept. 20

Montana Grizzlies

Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Sept. 20. 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.

So what did we do on this day in College Football America Yearbook history?

2012: BYU (FBS) at Boise State (FBS)

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb and director of editorial content Chuck Cox made the trip up to Boise, Idaho, to see the Boise State Broncos host the BYU Cougars. It was their first up-close look at the ‘Smurf Turf’ at BSU, and because of a connection we had made with a member of the Boise State sports information department, Kendall and Chuck were able to get an up-close tour of the stadium, and you can see that gallery here. Unfortunately we have no photo gallery from this game.

Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins decided it was time for one member of the staff to experience football in Fargo. And he picked a helluva matchup, too. At the time, NDSU was No. 1 in the country and Montana was in the Top 10. Billed as one of the biggest games in FCS that season, it didn’t disappoint. Neither did The Fargodome or the atmosphere around it, which Postins has consistently called a “mini-SEC tailgate party.”

Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox stayed close to home that weekend in order to catch two games in one day. First, it was a late morning stop at Ford Stadium in Dallas to see SMU host Texas A&M in non-conference action. A&M won, of course, but as always it was an entertaining game.

Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox wrapped up this day in 2014 with a drive from Dallas, Texas, to Athens, Texas, where the Trinity Valley Cardinals hosted his alma mater, the Kilgore Rangers. It’s one of the biggest rivalries in the Southwest Junior College Football Conference, and no matter which of these teams is better than the other, the outcome going in is also in doubt. Bruce Field, which is the home to both TVCC and Athens High School, is one of the best junior college venues you’re likely to find.

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb made it down to Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium to see the Arkansas Razorbacks host the Northern Illinois Huskies in non-conference action. At the time it was former head coach Bret Bielema’s second year at the helm in Fayetteville, and the Razorbacks went on to a relatively easy 52-14 win, putting them at 3-1 on the young season.

Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox took in some weeknight Conference USA action, as the Florida International Panthers took on the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs at Joe Ailett Stadium in Ruston, Louisiana. LA Tech has been a popular team for our staff to see, both at home on the road, since we began covering games for the Yearbook in 2010.
