Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Dec. 30. 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?
2010: Tennessee (FBS) vs. North Carolina (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook publisher Kendall Webb went to the home of the Tennessee Titans in Nashville, Tennessee, right by his home for the Music City Bowl, featuring the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Tennessee Volunteers. So you know it was a packed house. This was a fun game, too, as the Tar Heels won the game, 30-27, in double overtime over the Vols.
2010: Army West Point (FBS) vs. SMU (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox and editor Matthew Postins jetted over to Gerald J. Ford Stadium, the home of SMU football, to check out the Armed Forces Bowl in Dallas, Texas. Due to renovations as Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth, Texas, the game was moved to Dallas. Oddly enough, SMU earned an invite to a bowl game at their home stadium, but still lost to the Army West Point Black Knights, 16-14.
2013: Navy (FBS) vs. Middle Tennessee (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox and editor Matthew Postins were at the Armed Forces Bowl once again, this time back at Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth, Texas, to see Navy face Middle Tennessee. The Midshipmen beat the Blue Raiders, 24-6.
2019: Western Michigan (FBS) vs. Western Kentucky (FBS)
Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins was at Gerald J. Ford Stadium on the campus of SMU in Dallas, Texas, for another edition of the First Responder Bowl, which was at one point the Heart of Dallas Bowl, which was at one point the Ticket City Bowl. The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers won the game, 23-20, over the Western Michigan Broncos.
