Today in College Football America History – Sept. 27

Norfolk State Spartans

Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Sept. 27. 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 set out to get three games done in one day, and it helps that there are several college football teams in and around Norfolk, Virginia, that can accommodate. The first game of the day was in Newport News, Virginia, as the Apprentice Builders hosted the Bridgewater Eagles. Apprentice is not affiliated with the NCAA or the NAIA, but the Builders play NCAA and NAIA schools because they are considered a ‘countable’ opponent for schedule purposes.

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb next went to Norfolk, Virginia, to see the Norfolk State Spartans host the Morgan State Bears in Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference action. William “Dick” Price Stadium, the home of Norfolk State football, can hold up to 30,000 and has been the home of NSU football since 1997. Price was a former football and track coach at NSU.

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb wrapped up the night with a return trip to Newport News, Virginia, to see Christopher Newport host Methodist. This allowed Webb to see games at the FCS, Division II, Division III and unaffiliated levels in one day. The Captains started their football program in 2001, and its stadium has also served as a home for professional soccer.
