Today in College Football America History – Dec. 4

Bowling Green Falcons

Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Dec. 4. 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.

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb spent some time up in Washington and Idaho this particular weekend, and did it by seeing two games at two schools that are about a 15-minute drive from each other. The day started in Moscow, Idaho, as the Idaho Vandals hosted the San Jose State Spartans in a game that was, back then, a Western Athletic Conference contest. The game was held at the college football equivalent of an airline hangar, the Kibbie Dome, which is one of the college game’s most unique venues.

Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb left the Kibbie Dome at the University of Idaho and drove over to Martin Stadium, the home of Washington State football, as the Cougars hosted the Washington Huskies in a Pac-12 contest. The game, of course, is the Apple Cup, the annual meeting between the in-state rivals. The Cougars and Huskies have played nearly annually since 1900.

Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins decided it was time to get to a Mid-American Conference championship game. So, he headed up to Detroit, Michigan, to check out the Northern Illinois Huskies and the Bowling Green Falcons at Ford Field, the home of the Detroit Lions. Bowling Green won the game, 34-14.
