Temperature time relation (the universe)

Is there a general equation which will give you an approximate relation between the age of the universe (t), and it's temperature (T) at any time [t]?

The temperature can be related to expansion

but the exact relation between expansion and time depends on incompletely understood effects of inflation and dark energy.

basically, temperature is proportional to the density of the universe

that's wicked

how about for when T>>3,000K?

any approximate relations?

That's the time that we can't see because of Thompson scattering in the plasma, athough we can get some clues from the anisotropy in the CMB.
