Fifty-three year old Patrick Yarber of Nashville, Tennessee has spent the last three-plus decades chasing his goal of attending a college football game in every one of the 125 Division 1A stadiums.
He will reach that goal when he attends the Idaho Vandals game Saturday, November 8th, 2013 at the Kibbie Dome. Yarber has been legally blind for the last 45 years, afflicted with retinitis pigmentosa which has robbed him of 80 percent of his peripheral vision, and his central vision is affected by macular degeneration.

Patchin, Lukens and Osso talked with him on the eve of his accomplishment.
