So what did we do on this day in College Football America Yearbook history?
2010: Arkansas State (FBS) at Indiana (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb had spent the previous evening in Louisville, Kentucky, watching the Louisville Cardinals host the Cincinnati Bearcats. The following day, the Indiana Hoosiers were at home, hosting the Arkansas State Red Wolves in a non-conference game. Opened in 1960, this Memorial Stadium replaced the previous Memorial Stadium, which opened in 1925. One cool thing to check out if you go is the prow, mainmast, and two guns of the USS Indiana (BB-58), which can be found at the western entrance of the stadium.
2010: Western Michigan (FBS) at Notre Dame (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox and editor Matthew Postins met up in Chicago, Illinois, and the made the drive to South Bend, Indiana, for their first experience at Notre Dame Stadium, as the Notre Dame Fighting Irish hosted the Western Michigan Broncos. If you haven’t done gameday at Notre Dame Stadium, it is absolutely worth the trip. And do it in mid-October when the leaves have turned brilliant colors and there’s a crisp, fall breeze in the air.
2012: Louisiana (FBS) at UNT (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox made what seems to be an annual trip for the staff to Denton, Texas, as the North Texas Mean Green hosted the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns at Apogee Field. Back then the Mean Green were still part of the Sun Belt Conference. They would join Conference USA in 2013.
