Notes

  • * - Does not include all games. 1983 is missing three games, 1987 and 1988 are missing one game each.
  • Game by game time of possession was not published in the media guides prior to 1993. The Oklahoman started publishing it on a regular basis starting with the fourth game (Kansas State) of the 1983 season. However the numbers on their archived images are sometimes very hard to read, especially in the mid-late 1980s.
