Today in College Football America History – Oct. 7

Tulsa, SMU

Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Oct. 7. 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.
