Today in College Football America History – Oct. 25

TCU Horned Frogs

Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Oct. 25. 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.

2014: Faulkner (NAIA) at Bethel (TN) (NAIA)

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb made the trip from Nashville to McKenzie, Tennessee, for a Mid-South Conference West Division tilt between the Eagles and the host Wildcats. Faulkner, which was ranked No 5 in NAIA at the time, woke up from a lethargic start to cruise to a 27-7 win on the strength of three scoring possessions in the third quarter.

Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins was back at his home away from home, Amon Carter Stadium, to catch a Big 12 battle between the Red Raiders and host Horned Frogs. TCU was not playing around on this warm Saturday afternoon, rolling to an 82-27 whipping of Tech. The Horned Frogs scored 24 points in the first quarter and 31 more points in the third quarter. Wow. TCU finished the season with a 12-1 record and a bowl win over Ole Miss.
