Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Dec. 23. 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?
2016: LA Tech (FBS) vs. Navy (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox and editor Matthew Postins popped over to Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth, Texas, the home of TCU football, as it hosted the Armed Forces Bowl between the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs and the Navy Midshipmen. In a back-and-forth affair, the Bulldogs ended up taking the game, 48-45, over the Midshipmen.
2017: San Diego State (FBS) vs. Army West Point (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins was back at Amon G. Carter Stadium on the same day one year later for the same game — the Armed Forces Bowl in Fort Worth, Texas. Another service academy played in this one, the Army West Point Black Knights, who faced the San Diego State Aztecs. Again, it was a close game, but West Point pulled it out, 42-35.
