Today in College Football America History – Oct. 24

Jackson State Tigers

Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Oct. 24. 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.

2013: Marshall (FBS) at Middle Tennessee (FBS)

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb stayed close to home in the Nashville area and caught some Conference USA action between the Thundering Herd and the Blue Raiders and Johnny “Red” Floyd Stadium. Good decision. MTSU scored with three seconds left to emerge with a frantic 51-49 win. Quarterback Logan Kilgore connected with receiver Tavarres Jefferson for the game-winning score. The teams combined for more than 1,000 yards of total offense.

Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox took a drive down Interstate 45 to the Houston area to check out the new digs at Panther Stadium, which opened three years earlier. The Tigers and Panthers battled to a 28-28 stalemate at the end of regulation before JSU came away with a 38-35 Southwestern Athletic Conference win in double overtime under the Thursday night lights.
