Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Nov. 22. 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?
2014: West Georgia (D2) at Tuskegee (D2)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb headed down to Tuskegee, Alabama, for some Division II playoff action between the West Georgia Wolves and the Tuskegee Golden Tigers at Alumni Stadium. It was our first visit to Alumni Stadium and Tuskegee University, the latter of which has produced alumni such as the music group The Commodores, syndicated radio host Tom Joyner and former Tuskegee Airman Col. Lawrence E. Roberts.
2014: FIU (FBS) at UNT (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox drove up to Apogee Stadium in Denton, Texas, to see the UNT Mean Green host the FIU Panthers in Conference USA action. Apogee Stadium is a popular destination each football season for the Yearbook staff. Both Cox and Postins worked in Denton for the Record-Chronicle newspaper, covering high school and college sports.
2014: Georgia State (FBS) at Clemson (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins did the whole day in Clemson, South Carolina, as Clemson hosted the Georgia State Panthers in a non-conference contest. Walking the campus at Clemson is something else. You can check out the tailgating, get a good lock at Howard’s Rock and then hit the Esso Club after the game. Just make sure you get their early enough. Seating is at a premium on gameday.
2014: Samford (FCS) at Auburn (FCS)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb got in his own SEC ‘Happy Meal’ game on this day, as the Auburn Tigers hosted the Samford Bulldogs at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Auburn won, of course, in a season in which the Tigers went 8-5 that season, their second under Gus Malzahn.
