Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Nov. 28. 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: Virginia (FBS) at Virginia Tech (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb spent a long Thanksgiving weekend on the eastern seaboard. That weekend started with a visit to Lane Stadium in Blacksburg, Virginia, where he saw the Virginia Tech Hokies host the Virginia Cavaliers in the ACC finale for both teams. The two teams have not always met annually, but they have met more than 100 times since their first meeting in 1895. The two teams play for the Commonwealth Cup, given to the winner since the trophy’s creation for the 1996 game.
2015: Valdosta State (D2) at West Georgia (D2)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb took in some great Division II playoff action on this day as the Valdosta State Blazers faced the West Georgia Wolves at University Stadium in Carrollton, Georgia. The two teams were conference rivals at the time (Gulf South), and they knew each other well. West Georgia ended up winning the game, 27-20. The Wolves won their next playoff game against Tuskegee, before falling to Northwest Missouri State in the national semifinals. Northwest Missouri ended up winning the national title that season.
2015: Charlotte (FBS) at Rice (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox wrapped up his Thanksgiving weekend with a trip to Houston, Texas to see the Rice Owls host the Charlotte 49ers in Conference USA action. Rice Stadium is one of the few college-only stadiums to host a Super Bowl, having hosted Super Bowl XIII between the Miami Dolphins and the Minnesota Vikings.
