Today in College Football America History – Nov. 2

Clemson Tigers

Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Nov. 2. 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 publisher Kendall Webb dipped his toe into “MAC Week” for the first time with a mid-week game between the Temple Owls and the Ohio Bobcats at Peden Stadium in Athens, Ohio. It wasn’t just the staff’s first foray into MAC Week. It was our first trip to Athens for football.

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb rolled up to Lebanon, Tennessee, to check out an NAIA matchup between the Bethel (TN) Wildcats and the Cumberland (TN) Phoenix at Nokes-Lasater Field. Cumberland has consistently been one of our favorite places to catch a football game during the history of the Yearbook.

2013: West Virginia (FBS) at Baylor (FBS)

Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins drove from his home in Plano, Texas, to Waco, Texas, to see the West Virginia Mountaineers take on the Baylor Bears. Somehow, this has become one of the Big 12 matchups that Postins has seen the most over the years, but it was the first time saw West Virginia in person as part of the Yearbook staff.

Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins hit Holland, Michigan, to see a Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association matchup between the Alma Scots and the Hope Flying Dutchmen. It was the staff’s first MIAA conference game. Founded in 1888, the MIAA is the oldest conference in collegiate athletics and, at one time, was the home of the Michigan State Spartans. Alma joined the conference in 1902 and Hope joined in 1926.

Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox did a pair games in South Carolina on this day. The first was in Newberry, South Carolina, as Newberry hosted UNC Pembroke in a Division II showdown. It was the staff’s first visit to see the Newberry Wolves at home and the first time the staff saw the UNC Pembroke Braves in person.

Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox wasn’t able to spent the whole day in Newberry. He needed to get in the car and make a 95-mile drive upstate to Clemson, South Carolina, to see the Clemson Tigers host the Wofford Terriers in a non-conference showdown. It was Cox’s first visit to Memorial Stadium, Howard’s Rock and “Death Valley,” though LSU would probably take exception to the use of that nickname.
