Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Dec. 13. 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: Morningside (NAIA) vs. Marian (NAIA)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb was in Rome, Georgia, and Barron Stadium for the NAIA national championship game between the Marian Knights and the Morningside Mustangs. Marian won the game, 30-27, behind the overtime field goal of Mike Josifovski. The win was Marian’s first national title. It was the first appearance by both teams in the national title game. And it was the first NAIA title game to go to overtime. All the more impressive is that Marian didn’t have football until 2007.
2014: Mount SAC (CCCAA) vs. CCSF (CCCAA)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb ventured out west for the 2014 California State championship game, held in Walnut, California. Mount SAC won the game, 27-17, over the Community College of San Francisco (CCSF). This wasn’t the first rodeo for these teams. In fact, the 2014 game was the fifth time the two teams had faced each in the state title game. It was the third time Mount SAC had defeated CCSF in the title and Mount SAC’s fourth state title. California junior college football is unique in that teams only play teams within the state of California.
