I just signed back in to see if some books I want were finally accepted, and it said they were requested just yesterday.  I was not on PBS yesterday and know I requested them at least a week or more ago.  Any ideas why this is saying that?

The request probably timed out with the first person not accepting and went on to the next person - resetting the request date.

Yep, that's what happened almost certainly. When you request a book that's in the system, the member has 5 days to respond to that request. If they don't respond to the request, the system moves it automatically to the next person who posted that book and that resets the request date.
