Notes

  • During his research for The Oklahoma Football Encyclopedia, Ray Dozier said he found many game dates in the media guides from the early 1900s that were assumed to be on Saturdays, but weren't. That may cause problems with this list until I have updated those games in the database.
  • The only game played the day before Thanksgiving was a 12-0 loss at home to Arkansas on 11/25/1903.
  • Thanksgiving days as determined by timeanddate.com based on the dates in the OU media guide where some older game dates have proven to be wrong.
