So what did we do on this day in College Football America Yearbook history?
2014: Tyler (NJCAA) at Trinity Valley (NJCAA)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox went to Kilgore College in Kilgore, Texas, but he knows the teams of the Southwest Junior College Football Conference well. Two of them are near his old home base in Kilgore — Tyler Junior College in Tyler, Texas, and Trinity Valley Community College in Athens, Texas. So, on this day, Cox headed back to his old conference home to see the Cardinals host the Apaches at Bruce Field.
2014: Christopher Newport (D3) at Maryville (D3)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb made the short drive to Maryville, Tennessee to see a Division III matchup between the Christopher Newport Captains and the Maryville Scots. Back in 2014 this was a conference matchup in the USA South Conference. That Maryville team was coming off a playoff berth in 2013. The Maryville football team has a unique history. Its first football team was started by Japanese student Kin Takahashi, who went to school there in the late 1800s.
2014: FAU (FBS) at UNT (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins made the short drive from his home to Denton, Texas, to see the North Texas Mean Green host the FAU Owls in a Conference USA matchup at Apogee Stadium. The game was notable in that it was a prime-time affair on the CBS Sports Network and saw the Mean Green win just its third game of the season, beating the Owls, 31-10.
