Today in College Football America History – Oct. 6

Chadron State Eagles

Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Oct. 6. 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 stayed in the Nashville area to see MTSU take on rival WKU at Johnny “Red” Floyd Stadium in Murfreesboro. The Blue Raiders and Hilltoppers put on a show, with WKU hanging on for a 36-33 win in double overtime. The 100 Miles of Hate rivalry dates back to 1914.

Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox had seen a few Battle of the Piney Woods rivalry games, but this was the first time he had seen one of them played at Houston’s NRG Stadium, home of the Houston Texans. The annual contest between the Lumberjacks and Bearkats moved to the venue in 2010. SHSU won the slugfest, 51-43. Unfortunately we have no photo gallery from this game.

The host Bulldogs made quick work of the Drillers, rolling to a 70-8 victory outside of conference play.
