Notes

  • * In the absence of an official game-time temperature, the high temperature according to official weather records for the day or as close to game time as possible has been used.
  • Outside temperatures for games in domes are not included. The 2002 Big 12 Championship Game in Reliant/NRG stadium in Houston is listed as 54 degrees since the roof was open.
  • Brief to full box scores are available on OU's website from 1999-present, and most contain temperature from 2000-present (see Issues below).
  • Media guides from 1963 to 1986 include temperature when summarizing the last meeting for opponents from that season.
  • Media guides from 1979 to present include recaps or box scores for the previous season's games, but do not include temperature.
  • The Oklahoma City forecast high for the 1983 Ohio State game was 94. In Oklahoma City, it was 93 at 2 PM, 95 at 3 PM, and 96 at 4 PM, and 95 at 5 PM.
