    I think the 1991 playoff game with LC and Sheldon Clark was the coldest I remember. It was the first round of the playoffs and the game was delayed because the lights wouldn't come on. It was too cold! It snowed most of the game with a little breeze!

    I don't rember the date but about 1997 or so I went to Hazard to watch the bulldogs and Lynn Camp play a playoff game. It was about 25 the field was covered in about 10 inches of muddy mess, man I'm still cold from that night.

    Yes, 1982 AFC Championship game, Kenny Anderson's Bengals deliberately open the gates before the game and let the Riverfront freeze in and crush Dan Fouts' and my hopes of those Chargers ever reaching the Super Bowl, 27-7. I think the wind chill was 30 below or something on the field.

    Bardstown went to Fulton County for semi-state in 1993. The Mississippi had flooded the week before and the field was mud that had turned to ice, and it was about 12 degrees with a pretty stiff wind to make wind chill especially nice. One of the tailbacks had one of those little charcoal hand heaters, and it froze. Bardstown won 7-0 . . .

    I was at the Bengals freezer bowl, or what ever you call it now. It was cold, but actually at the time it was just another game. I didn't realize it was anything special till after the game . Just another cold football game.

    For me, personally, the North Laurel-Scott Co. playoff game last year was bitter cold, with the temp about 20 degrees at kickoff, and lower than that wind-chill. How Jim McKee went that whole game with his bald head exposed is beyond me.

    The 2000 game between Highlands and Harrison County was a cold one on the hilltop.... But it may have just been colder for me because the Breds were beaten so badly.

    The coldest game Ive ever been to was 1985 Belfry vs. Newport in the 3A semi finals.
    15 degrees with wind chill off of the Ohio river of well below 0. All I remember was buying hot chocolate and it being ice cold by the time I got back to my seats, all yea and Belfry winning 27 to 7, to advance the state finals.

    Rockcastle Co @ Sheldon Clark for the Regional Finals in 2000. Don't know the temperature, but there could not have been a colder game than this.

    How about the famous Ice Bowl between Green Bay and Dallas in the late 60's? The heating grid uner Lambeau froze on that day. I believe that was the coldest football game ever played.

    The Ice Bowl was the coldest without wind chill. The Freezer Bowl was the coldest with wind chill.
