So what did we do on this day in College Football America Yearbook history?
2014: Bridgewater (VA) (D3) at Apprentice School (Unaffilated)
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.
2014: Morgan State (FCS) at Norfolk State (FCS)
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.
2014: Methodist (D3) at Christopher Newport (D3)
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.
2014: Texas Lutheran (D3) at SAGU (NAIA)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox has been to SAGU (also known as Southwestern Assemblies of God University) several times before. The Waxahachie, Texas-based college hosted Texas Lutheran on this day at Lumpkins Stadium, which also hosts football for Waxahachie High School.
2014: TCU (FBS) at SMU (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox found himself at Gerald J. Ford Stadium to see the ‘Iron Skillet’ game between the TCU Horned Frogs and the SMU Mustangs. Unfortunately, we don’t have a gallery link for this game.
