Today in College Football America History – Nov. 9

Ferris 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, Nov. 9. 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 lives in Tennessee, and that puts him close to the Ohio Valley, too, and the Ohio Valley Conference has been a part of collegiate sports since 1948. Murray State was one of the league’s original members, while Eastern Illinois joined in 1996. On this day, Webb made the trip to Murray, Kentucky, to see the Racers host the Panthers, the latter of which is the alma mater of former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.

Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins wrapped up what was an 11-day trip to Michigan in 2019 with a drive to Big Rapids, Michigan, which is on the west side of the state, to see what they call the Anchor-Bone Game between the Grand Valley State Lakers and the Ferris State Bulldogs. The atmosphere at Top Taggart Stadium was worth the price of admission — sold-out stands loud the whole game. Ferris State won the game and won the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference title in the process.

Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox has seen plenty of college football inside the state of Texas, and one of his stated goals is to see every Texas collegiate football team in person. One of the last he needed was Trinity, based in San Antonio, where he lived just after high school. The Tigers hosted Birmingham-Southern on this day at Trinity Football Stadium.
