Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Dec. 1. 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?
2012: Kilgore (NJCAA) vs. Northwest Mississippi (NJCAA)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox went to the Brazos Valley Bowl, held at Kyle Field in College Station, Texas, to see the Kilgore College Rangers and the Northwest Mississippi Rangers (see what we did there?). It was a big deal for both teams. How many kids get to say they played at Kyle Field, the home of the Texas A&M Aggies?
2018: Kilgore (NJCAA) vs. Pima (NJCAA)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox was at the C.H.A.M.P.S. Heart of Texas Bowl at Waco ISD Stadium in Waco, Texas, to see the Pima Community College Aztecs face the Kilgore College Rangers. It was a big day in central Texas, as the game proved to be the final one in the history of Pima CC football. The program was disbanded the following offseason.
2018: Ferris State (D2) at Ouachita Baptist (D2)
Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins drove up to Arkadelphia, Arkansas, to see the Division II playoff semifinal between the Ferris State Bulldogs and the Ouachita Baptist Tigers. Ferris State ended up winning the game, which paved the way for the program to head for the Division II national championship game the following weekend.
