Bad weather football games

Recommended Posts

The 2009 FCS Semifinal Game of Appalachian St. @ Montana was played in decently heavy snow and was a great game too, I might add. One of the best football games I've seen at any level. Couldn't find any still pictures, but the last few minutes of the game are in the video below.

That felt like one of the coldest days ever in eugene. We made a bee line straight to the bar after the game for some warm brandy. Another ten minutes and a St. Bernard would have had to deliver it to me.

The Michigan-Ohio State "Snow Bowl" in 1950, featuring 45 combined punts (the only TD was on a blocked punt):

The 1982 AFC Championship between the Bengals and Chargers - air temperature was −9 °F (−23 °C), with a wind of 27 miles per hour, for a wind chill factor of −59 °F:

And finally, this has already been mentioned, but the Bears-Eagles "Fog Bowl" in 1988 was incredible:

Ball state vs bowling green 2006 (those pants were white when the game began, not brown)Bowling-Green-kicks-a-dud-in-the-mud-against-Miami.jpg

Actually that is Bowling Green vs Miami in the MAC Championship game held in Bowling Green in 2003. Ben Roethlisberger's last season with the Rehawks. Also the last MAC Championship game at a school's site before it was moved to Ford Field in 2004.

I cannot believe we have not mentioned this yet, The Tuck Rule Game.

Actually someone did earlier, but yes this is the first game I thought of when I read the thread title.

"My mistake I meant to say miami, but this was a regular season game in 2006 I'm positive"

After 2nd thought, you are right it is from 2006. The last game before they installed turf the following season. If I re-call correctly the game I was reffering to was also bad weather, but I think more on the cold side.

The game I was mistaken for.

THIS was the ultimate to me when I was living in OKC in 1985. The year OU won the MNC, Thurman Thomas as a sophomore. Listening to this on the radio and hearing all the changes of environment from the 1st Quarter to the end. I remember seeing on the Pat Jones show the next week Thurman in a massive thermal blanket trying to get his circulation going again on the locker room floor during halftiime. Even OKC got hit by that and hearing the changes on our roof made me feel the cold. And surprise that they got shutout 13-0.

AluminumBowl2_f.jpg

The 1956 Aluminum Bowl (NAIA National Championship game) between Montana State and St. Joseph's of Indiana in War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock.

The conditions were so bad that there were only three pass attempts the entire game and it ended with a 0-0 tie.

Montanans regularly freeze their tails off in the middle of November to watch the Cat-Griz game (we don't call it the "Brawl of the Wild.) The *warmest* kickoff temperature for that game was 67˚. Coldest 2˚ (before wind chill.)
