Today in College Football America History – Oct. 27

Indiana (PA) Crimson Hawks

Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Oct. 27. 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 had a bittersweet Thursday evening in Space City. On one hand, they witnessed a rivalry game between the Owls and the Cougars and caught a game at Robertson Stadium. UH moved into TDECU Stadium three years later. However, after seeing the Cougars dismantle the Owls, 73-34, they watched their beloved Texas Rangers come within one pitch of winning the World Series twice and blowing it. UH finished the season 14-1 and beat Penn State in the Cotton Bowl.

Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox made his first venture to Jerry E. Apple Stadium in Sherman to catch a contest between the Colonels and the Kangaroos. Centre was in no mood to accommodate Austin College on homecoming, as the Colonels came away with a 17-0 Southern Athletic Association victory. Centre scored all but three of the game’s points in the first half and held the Kangaroos to 160 yards of total offense.

Rhodes brought home the Orgill Trophy with a 14-10 Southern Athletic Association win. The Lynx scored a touchdown with 29 seconds remaining in the game to spoil Sewanee’s homecoming and grab their first conference win.  

2012: Memphis (FBS) at SMU (FBS)

Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins was just a hop, skip and a jump from home at Ford Stadium to catch a homecoming matchup between the Tigers and the Mustangs. SMU asserted its dominance with a dominant 44-13 American Athletic Conference victory. The Ponies went on to finish 7-6 and win a bowl game over Fresno State in head coach June Jones’ return to Hawaii’s Aloha Stadium.

Miller Stadium. Indiana (PA) made quick work of Seton Hill, rolling to a 56-14 win behind a strong performance by quarterback Lenny Williams Jr. The McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania, product accounted for four touchdowns in the win.

Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox completed the second of two straight nights of his Southern California swing with a game at another iconic venue, Los Angeles Memorial Stadium. It was his second trip there but his first time to see the Trojans take on a Pac-12 opponent in person. But it was the Sun Devils who scored a 38-35 comeback win sparked by a 92-yard punt return for a touchdown by N’Keal Harry.
