So what did we do on this day in College Football America Yearbook history?
2015: West Virginia (FBS) at Baylor (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox and editor Matthew Postins hit Waco, Texas, to see the Baylor Bears host the West Virginia Mountaineers at McLane Stadium. Postins was in the press box and Cox was on the field for this one, as the Bears took out the Mountaineers, 62-38, on their way to a 10-win season and an appearance in the Citrus Bowl.
2015: Davidson (FCS) at Butler (FCS)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb loves football, loves to drive and loves to see multiple games in a day, especially when they’re close. Webb managed to get in three games on this day in 2015, thanks to some compact geography in Indiana. First, Webb setting in for a Pioneer Football League game in Indianapolis, Indiana, as the Butler Bulldogs hosted the Davidson Wildcats at what was then called the Butler Bowl. The stadium first opened in 1928.
2015: Georgia State (FBS) at Ball State (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb needed to get to Muncie, Indiana, for a mid-afternoon kickoff. Fortunately, it’s only about an hour’s drive to there from Indianapolis, where he started the day. In Muncie is Ball State University, which on this date hosted Georgia State in a non-conference affair. Ball State, of course, is best known as the alma mater of late-night talk show legend David Letterman.
2015: Denison (D3) at Wittenberg (D3)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb wrapped up his day in Springfield, Ohio, a full 164 miles from Muncie, to see a Division III showdown between the Wittenberg Tigers and the Denison Big Red. Among the notable alumni of Wittenberg include the late Raiders owner Al Davis (who spent just a semester there) and Adam Willis Wagnalls, one half of the founders of the Funk and Wagnalls Company.
