I like the afternoon games. Hope the weather is good that day in Norman.
When was the last Bedlam night game in Norman?
2001 as I recall.
This is great, I would have bet that this game would have been scheduled for night. But it still sucks that only 1/3 of the games this year (home and away) were in the daytime.
That one started in the daylight and ended around 6 p.m. I do know that the bad stuff happened after sunset, though. I don't think a Bedlam home game has ever started after 2:30 p.m. CST.
The last one played in Norman was entirely played in daylight. I was there, in 2009. It's pure insanity to play a true night game in Oklahoma after the first week in November, due to the weather.
You're right; my memory is confused by Woods (?) somehow coming down with that ball in the darkness...
Those horrific images were all at "night" - I am so glad I missed that one completely. I was at a game in Albuquerque (UNM-NMSU) and driving home when someone called in on the Lobo network to mention that "anything can happen" in a rivalry game. The caller used the "in-progress" game between OU and OSU as an example, and I about had a wreck when I heard that OSU had just scored to take the lead.
I still say that game was way worse than OU-TT was last year, in terms of heinous home losses. Tech was actually playing pretty well at the time, then they tanked later; plus it was Bedlam. And, to cap it all off, it was a loss to Less Miles (intentional misspelling).
Quite a rivalry, huh?
I can understand why a day game is better for osu. The sheep will still be up waiting when the team gets back to town.

FWIW - what I think was still the most significant (nationally) Bedlam game when I lived in Oklahoma was in '84. That one ended after dark as well. That was not only a great game, it should have been a more lopsided score than 24-14, in OU's favor. And it still caused some Aggy meltdowns about the "no call" on a fumbled punt by OSU, the "mean" OU fans (from the whiny Stillwater News-Press), while forgetting they got a gift TD on the last play of the half when the clock should have run out before they snapped it.
I don't think there has ever been a Bedlam night game in Norman
