Today in College Football America History – Sept. 25

Idaho Vandals, Colorado State Rams

Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Sept. 25. 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 publisher Kendall Webb wanted to hit two games in one Saturday, and that’s not the easiest thing to do in the Rocky Mountains But it can be done, and Webb started the day in Laramie, Wyoming, to see the Wyoming Cowboys host the Air Force Falcons at War Memorial Stadium. At 7,215 feet, War Memorial Stadium is the highest stadium in FBS in terms of elevation. The school that is No. 2? Well, it’s Air Force, actually. The Falcons’ stadium is 6,621 feet above sea level.

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb finished the day in Fort Collins, Colorado, as the Colorado State Rams hosted the Idaho Vandals in non-conference action. It was our first visit to Fort Collins for a game, and back then the Rams played in Sonny Lubick Field at Hughes Stadium, which served as the program’s home from 1969 to 2017 before it was replaced by a new stadium in 2018. Continuing the feet above sea level theme, the stadium was approximately 5,190 feet above sea level.
