Today in College Football America History – Oct. 29

Mississippi State Bulldogs

Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Oct. 29. 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.

As an added bonus, Cox and Webb got to see the first two teams to square off in a college football game in 1869 – Princeton and Rutgers – play on the same day.
