Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Dec. 3. 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?
2010: Illinois (FBS) at Fresno State (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb spent the first weekend of December in 2010 on a long trip out west. He started in Fresno, California, as he paid his first visit to the home of Fresno State football, as the Bulldogs hosted Illinois in a non-conference game for both teams. At the time, Fresno State was in the Western Athletic Conference and their 8-5 season led to a berth in the Humanitarian Bowl against Northern Illinois.
2011: Middle Tennessee (FBS) at UNT (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb, editor Matthew Postins and director of editorial content Chuck Cox got together for the first and only time during the 2011 season, and the rally point was Denton, Texas, as the North Texas Mean Green hosted the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders in a conference finale for both teams. Cox and Postins worked for the Denton Record-Chronicle, while Webb got a degree from Middle Tennessee.
2016: Kansas State (FBS) at TCU (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins wrapped up the regular season in 2016 with a visit to Amon G. Carter Stadium to cover the game between the Kansas State Wildcats and the TCU Horned Frogs for RattleandHumSports.com. For that reason, we don’t have a gallery for this game.
2016: Louisiana Tech (FBS) at Western Kentucky (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb also wrapped up his 2016 regular season on this day, as the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs paid a visit to the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
