So what did we do on this day in College Football America Yearbook history?
2011: Rice (FBS) at Houston (FBS)
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.
2012: Centre (D3) at Austin College (D3)
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.
2012: Rhodes (D3) at Sewanee (D3)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb was at the University of the South to take in a rivalry game between the Lynx and the Tigers at Harris Stadium. 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.
2018: Seton Hill (D2) at Indiana (PA) (D2)
Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins made his way to the Keystone State to check out a Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference West Division contest between the Griffins and the host Crimson Hawks at George P. 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.
2018: Arizona State (FBS) at USC (FBS)
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.
