Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Nov. 14. 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.

So what did we do on this day in College Football America Yearbook history?
2015: San Diego (FCS) at Davidson (FCS)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb was not fooling around in North Carolina on this day. He started a tripleheader of games just outside of Charlotte at Richardson Stadium on the beautiful campus of Davidson. The Toreros weren’t fooling around, either. San Diego cruised to a 35-10 Pioneer League victory over the host Wildcats. The Toreros rushed for 278 yards, while allowing Davidson just 48 yards on the ground.
2015: UTSA (FBS) at Charlotte (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb got a taste of his home state of Texas as he caught two fledgling programs doing battle at Jerry Richardson Stadium in the second game of his tripleheader that day. The visiting Roadrunners notched an exciting 30-27 overtime win over the 49ers. UTSA played its first football season in 2011, while Charlotte added football two years later.
2015: Mars Hill (D2) at Brevard (D2)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb wrapped up a busy tripleheader Saturday in the great state of North Carolina with a trip to Memorial Stadium for a South Atlantic Conference contest in the nightcap. The visiting Lions grounded the Tornados, 27-7, to finish the season with a 6-5 record. Brevard went winless for the year with the setback.
2015: Lamar (FCS) at Incarnate Word (FCS)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox was in one of the many places that he has lived, San Antonio, to check out a Southland Conference game between a pair of Cardinal teams. Lamar, behind another strong performance by running back Kade Harrington, claimed a 28-21 win. Harrington became the program’s all-time leading rusher with 217 yards and two touchdowns on 31 attempts. He still owns most of Lamar’s rushing records, including yards in a game (347), yards in a season (2,092) and yards in a career (4,348).
2015: Oklahoma (FBS) at Baylor (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins made a short trip down I-35 to Waco to catch a monster Big 12 battle between the Sooners and the Bears at McLane Stadium. OU spoiled Baylor’s undefeated season with a 44-34 shootout win. The loss was the first of three in four games for the Bears, who closed out the season with a bowl win. The Sooners went on to finish 11-2 and earn a spot in the College Football Playoff.
