Today in College Football America History – Oct. 11

Middle Tennessee

Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Oct. 11. 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 loves seeing his alma maters, whether they’re at home or on the road. This time, Webb wanted to see his Blue Raiders in Conference USA action, so he headed up to Huntington, West Virginia, to see the Blue Raiders face the Marshall Thundering Herd. Marshall won the game, 49-24, as the Thundering Herd went on to a 13-win season and a C-USA title.

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb wasn’t content to catch just one game that Saturday in 2014. No, he had to push for two. So, from Huntington, West Virginia, Webb drove 129 miles to Richmond, Kentucky, to see the Eastern Kentucky Colonels host the Eastern Illinois Panthers in an Ohio Valley Conference showdown. EKU won the game, 36-33, as the Colonels went on to win nine games in 2014.

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb was spending some time in the plains states on Sunday in 2015 when he decided to hit Coffeyville, Kansas to see the Coffeyville Red Ravens host the Bethel (TN) Wildcats JV. Yep, the NAIA-level Wildcats had a JV team, and for junior college teams like Coffeyville games like that can help them fill out their schedules. And, you know what? JV players need the work, too.
