Today in College Football America History – Oct. 22

Stanford Cardinal

Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Oct. 22. 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 director of editorial content Chuck Cox took a quick trip across the Metroplex from Dallas to Fort Worth to see the Horned Frogs take on the Lobos in TCU’s final season in the Mountain West Conference. It was no contest from the opening kickoff, as the Horned Frogs rolled to a 69-0 win before leaping to the Big 12 Conference in 2012. TCU won the MWC in its final season on the way to an 11-2 record and a bowl win.
