Today in College Football America History – Oct. 18

Centre Colonels

Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Oct. 18. 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.

2012: Houston (FBS) at SMU (FBS)

Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox went to Gerald J. Ford Stadium to see the SMU Mustangs host the Houston Cougars in a Conference USA contest. Unfortunately we have no photo gallery from this game.

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb headed back up to the Cumberlands to check out Sewanee as the Tigers hosted the Centre Colonels in a conference game. Centre College is located in Danville, Kentucky, and it has a reputation for hosting high-profile political events. The school hosted both the 2000 and 2012 Vice Presidential debates. Locally they billed it as the ‘Thrill in the Ville’ and Centre is the smallest college and smallest city to host a national debate of this nature.
