Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Dec. 9. 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?
2017: Harding (D2) at Texas A&M-Commerce (D2)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox slid over to Commerce, Texas, where the Texas A&M-Commerce Lions hosted the Harding Bisons in a Division II semifinal contest at Memorial Stadium. The Lions won the game, 31-17, and advanced to the national championship game in Kansas City, Missouri, where they beat the West Florida Argonauts in the national championship game.
2017: Brockport (D3) at Mary Hardin-Baylor (D3)
Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins was in Belton, Texas, to check out a Division III semifinal playoff game between the Brockport Golden Eagles and the Mary Hardin-Baylor Crusaders at Crusader Stadium. UMHB won the game, 24-0, setting up another opportunity for the Crusaders to face Mount Union in the national championship game. But the Purple Raiders took the title, 12-0, a week later. It ended up being the last Stagg Bowl played in Salem, Virginia.
