Notes

  • The 1949 Boston College game was scheduled to be played the night of Friday September 23. But heavy rain while yard stripes were being added to Braves Field turned it into a "mudhole" according to Bud Wilkinson, so they agreed to move the game to Saturday night. According to notes in the Daily Oklahoman and Boston Globe, the postponement is believed to be the first due to rain or mud for Oklahoma.
  • According to a note in the Daily Oklahoman, the 2011 Texas Tech game was the third weather delay since Bob Stoops' first season (1999).
