Today we celebrate this day in College Football America Yearbook history by looking back on the games we’ve covered on this date, Jan. 5. 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?
2013: North Dakota State (FCS) vs. Sam Houston State (FCS)
Our College Football America Yearbook director of editorial content Chuck Cox, editor Matthew Postins and publisher Kendall Webb made the rare appearance as a trio at the FCS national championship game at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas, as the North Dakota State Bison faced the Sam Houston State Bearkats. The Bison won the game, 39-13, which allowed the Bison to defend their national title.
2019: Eastern Washington (FCS) vs. North Dakota State (FCS)
Our College Football America Yearbook editor Matthew Postins was at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas, for the FCS national championship game, which featured the North Dakota State Bison and the Eastern Washington Eagles. The Eagles were the first team the College Football America staff saw win a national title in Toyota Stadium, way back in 2010. But on this day, the Eagles fell to the Bison, 38-24. The win was NDSU’s seventh FCS national title and their fourth under head coach Chris Klieman, who left the program after the game to take over at Kansas State.
