Today in College Football America History – Oct. 23

Battle of the Pine Woods

Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Oct. 23. 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 editor Matthew Postins and director of editorial content Chuck Cox were not about to miss the 85th “Battle of the Piney Woods” rivalry game between SFA and SHSU at being played at Houston’s Reliant Stadium (now NRG Stadium) for the first time. Lumberjack quarterback Jeremy Moses became the Southland Conference’s all-time leading passer with 418 yards and four touchdowns to lead SFA to a 31-28 win in front of 24,685. He went on to win the Walter Payton Award that season.
