Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Dec. 21. 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?
2019: Minnesota State (D2) vs. West Florida (D2)
Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins spent his Saturday at McKinney ISD Stadium in McKinney, Texas, for the second straight season as the Minnesota State Mavericks and the West Florida Argonauts tangled for the 2019 Division II national championship. The Argos, in just their fourth season as a college football team, defeated the Mavericks in a thriller, 48-40, to claim their first national title. It was UWF’s second trip to the national title game, having lost to Texas A&M-Commerce in 2017.
2019: Morningside (NAIA) vs. Marian (NAIA)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox was at Eddie Robinson Stadium in Grambling, Louisiana, as Grambling State University hosted the NAIA national championship game between the Marian Knights and the Morningside Mustangs. Morningside won a thriller, 40-38, claiming its second straight NAIA national title behind the play of quarterback Joe Dolincheck, who was the game’s offensive most valuable player. It was the third time the two teams had met in the playoffs, but this was the first time that Morningside won.
