OUTLAWS TRIVIA

--
"Oklahoma Outlaws" was the name of a 1943 western film starring Robert Shayne, Juanita Stark and Warner Anderson.
--
Today, "Arizona Outlaws" is the name of an amateur rowing club.
--
The Oklahoma Outlaws ended Week 3 of the 1984 USFL season at 2-1-0, despite scoring only 35 points total.
--
The defense to that point had allowed only 27 - 3 against Pittsburgh, 17 against the Denver Gold, and 7 against the San Antonio Gunslingers.

William Tatham, Jr. was just 29 years old when he began overseeing the day to day operations of the Oklahoma Outlaws.

When it was decided that the team would call Oklahoma home, the Tathams tried to split home games between Tulsa's Skelly Stadium and Memorial Stadium in Norman.  The University of Oklahoma wouldn't come to terms with the Outlaws on leasing the stadium for games, however, and the team played its 1984 schedule entirely at Skelly.

Skelly Stadium was, and remains, the home of the University of Tulsa's Golden Hurricanes.

The Outlaws were Oklahoma's first franchise in a 'major' pro sports league.

The Oklahoma Outlaws were one of 4 USFL franchises (28% of the entire league) to relocate after the 1984 season.  In addition to the Outlaws relocation to Phoenix, the New Orleans Breakers moved to Portland, the Philadelphia Stars moved to Baltimore, and the Washington Federals moved to Orlando and became the Renegades.  

Wearing black uniform jerseys with black helmets, the Oklahoma Outlaws were often confused at first glance with the Houston Gamblers, who wore a nearly identical color scheme.

The Oklahoma Outlaws played fewer than half of their games on Sundays in 1984.  8 of the team's games were scheduled for Saturdays, 2 for Friday evenings, and one (a June 18 game against the defending USFL champion Michigan Panthers) was slated for ESPN's Monday night telecast.
