Today in College Football America History – Sept. 22

Idaho Vandals, Wyoming Cowboys

Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Sept. 22. 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 hit one of our favorite places for college football, Commerce, Texas, to see the Texas A&M-Commerce Lions host the Ouachita Baptist Tigers. The yearbook staff has made appearances nearly every year at Memorial Stadium, which boasts former NFL quarterback Wade Wilson and defensive tackle Harvey Martin, both of which played for the Dallas Cowboys.

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb and director of editorial content Chuck Cox hit the road together for this one, as the pair made their first visit to Pullman, Washington, to see the Washington State Cougars host the Colorado Buffaloes at Martin Stadium. The game was auspicious, as it represented Colorado’s first visit to Washington State as a member of the Pac-12. The Buffaloes had joined the league before the 2011 season. That also happened to be Mike Leach’s first season as head coach at Wazoo.

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb and director of editorial content Chuck Cox put together this road trip for a reason. Pullman, Washington, the home of Washington State University, and Moscow, Idaho, the home of the University of Idaho, are just 10 miles from each other. So that made it easy for the pair to take in Idaho’s home game with Wyoming at the Kibbie Dome. At the time, the Vandals were members of the FBS’s Sun Belt Conference, even though the Kibbie Dome only holds 16,000 for football. But, it’s one of the few FBS venues that hosts football and basketball games, a club that includes Syracuse’s Carrier Dome.
