So what did we do on this day in College Football America Yearbook history?
2010: USF (FBS) at West Virginia (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb has probably heard “Take Me Home, Country Roads,’ hundreds of times in his life. But it’s a little bit different when it’s sung by the full-throated fans of the West Virginia Mountaineers, who sing the song after home games. Webb got a taste of that tradition when the Mountaineers hosted the South Florida Bulls, in a game that was then a Big East showdown.
2014: Louisiana (FBS) at Texas State (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins hadn’t spent much time in San Marcos, Texas, before that night, which is hard to imagine considering the Texas State Bobcats did some time in the Southland Conference with his alma mater, Stephen F. Austin. So this was actually his first trip to Texas State for a football game, as the Bobcats hosted the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns in a weeknight game that was on national television.
2017: UTSA (FBS) at UNT (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins ventured out for a weeknight game in Denton, Texas, as the North Texas Mean Green hosted the UT-San Antonio Roadrunners in a Conference USA showdown at Apogee Stadium. This was a fun game that UNT ultimately won.
2017: Chabot (CCCAA) at Fresno City (CCCAA)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox loves heading out to California, and if he can get a couple of games in the same place, all the better. So it was worth it to be in Fresno, California, that weekend as he took in both a California Community College Athletic Association game and a Mountain West game. First, Cox headed over to Fresno City Community College to see the Rams take on Chabot.
2017: New Mexico (FBS) at Fresno State (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox needed only to drive across town to Bulldog Stadium, the home of the Fresno State Bulldogs since 1980, to end his evening as the Bulldogs hosted the New Mexico Lobos in Mountain West action. While it was Cox’s first home game at Bulldog Stadium, New Mexico became one of those teams that Cox has seen both at home and on the road.
2017: Emporia State (D2) at Lindenwood (D2)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb had his own two-game day on tap in the Missouri area. First, in St. Charles, Missouri, you’ll find Hunter Stadium, the home of the Lindenwood Lions. That day the Lions hosted the Emporia State Hornets. But Hunter Stadium is a gem and one of the prettiest stadiums in Division II football. It’s worth the trip, even if you don’t have a dog in the fight.
2017: Concordia-Ann Arbor (NAIA) at Missouri Baptist (NAIA)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb ended his day in St. Louis, Missouri, which isn’t far from St. Charles. But the metro area is the home of Missouri Baptist College, which on this day hosted Concordia-Ann Arbor, which plays in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The Spartans’ home stadium, Spartan Field, was built in 2015 and is one of the best facilities you’ll stumble across in the lower divisions of college football.
