Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Nov. 19. 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?
2011: Arkansas State (FBS) at Middle Tennessee (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb stuck close to home and soaked in a Sun Belt Conference contest between the Red Wolves and the Blue Raiders at Johnny “Red” Floyd Stadium. A-State rolled to a lopsided 45-19 win on its way to claiming the conference championship with an unblemished Sun Belt ledger. The Red Wolves finished 10-3 and lost to Northern Illinois in a bowl game.
2011: Stephen F. Austin (FCS) at Northwestern State (FCS)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox was up for a rivalry game at Turpin Stadium in Natchitoches, Louisiana. The Lumberjacks had no intention of going back to Nacogdoches, Texas, without Chief Caddo, a seven-foot six, 320-plus-pound trophy. SFA rolled to a 33-0 victory and limited the Demons to just 100 yards of total offense.
2015: East Carolina (FBS) at UCF (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox and editor Matthew Postins should have really paid attention to where they parked the car for this game. Still, their first visit to what was then Bright House Networks Stadium. ECU picked up its fourth win of the season by trouncing the winless Knights, 44-7, in American Athletic Conference play.
2016: Grand View (NAIA) at Lindsey Wilson (NAIA)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb was in Columbia, Kentucky, to check out an NAIA playoff game between the Vikings and the Blue Raiders. And what a game it was. Lindsey Wilson came away with a 34-27 overtime victory to advance in the postseason. Lindsey Wilson lost to Baker in the quarterfinals the following week.
2016: Arizona State (FBS) at Washington (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox checked another big stadium off his wish list with a trip to Seattle’s Husky Stadium for a Pac-12 match-up between the Sun Devils and the Huskies. After a lackluster first quarter by both teams, Washington asserted its dominance on the way to a 44-18 win and a 12-2 season. The Huskies earned a College Football Playoff spot and lost to Alabama in the semis.
