June 7 marks 89 days to the start of the major college football season on Sept. 3, 2015. Every day leading up to kickoff to the 2015 season we’ll take you back to a photo from our travels last season, a photo that may or may not be in our upcoming publication, the College Football America 2015 Yearbook. The book will be available this summer through Amazon.com, iBooks (please download the iBooks app to purchase and view) and Lulu.com. When the book hits the streets we’ll let you know. It’s the most comprehensive guide to the college football season, with preview information on every conference and every team in every division of the game in a high-quality, all-color presentation. We hope you’ll check it out. Until then check out our 2014 edition at Amazon.com and iBooks.
College Football America’s director of editorial content, Chuck Cox, caught one of the best games we saw all year when he drove up to Arkadelphia, Ark., to see Ouachita Bapitst host Minnesota-Duluth in a Division II playoff game. Part of the reason to drive up was to see the refurbished stadium there at OBU, which is now named for the school’s mos famous alumni, former Dallas Cowboys safety Cliff Harris. On this day the Tigers and the Bulldogs treated the locals to one heck of a game, with Minnesota-Duluth winning, 48-45. M-D went on to reach the quarterfinals before losing to in-state rival Minnesota State, which in turn went on to the Division II national title game and lost to CSU-Pueblo. Drew White, Ouachita Baptist’s receiver in this photo, graduated. Minnesota-Duluth’s Hunter Malberg is not on the roster for 2015 as of today. But the Bulldogs will be out to get over the hump in 2015.
Check in with us tomorrow for our next photo in our College Football America Flashback.
