Today in College Football America History – Oct. 2

LSU Tigers

Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Oct. 2. 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 and editor Matthew Postins did not plan to drive all night from the Dallas/Fort Worth area to see their first game at Tiger Stadium. But that’s what happened after the SEC contest between the Vols and the Tigers was moved from a night game to a day game. Fortunately, it was a beautiful day in Red Stick. LSU also pulled off a wild 16-14 victory by scoring a touchdown with no time left in the game. They also got to hear Garth Brooks’ cover of “Callin’ Baton Rouge” at an LSU football game, which did not suck.
