Alabama, Texas to play in 2022 and 2023


"We're thrilled to be able to add another incredible nonconference opponent with the University of Texas for a home-and-home series", Crimson Tide athletic director Greg Byrne said in a university release.

Almost a month after announcing a future home-and-home series against Notre Dame, Alabama unveiled a second huge series against another of the nation's blue blood programs.

Texas will host the Crimson Tide on September 10, 2022, before traveling to Tuscaloosa on September 9, 2023, for the return leg of their series.

The University of Alabama and The University of Texas have announced a home-and-home series between the Crimson Tide and Longhorns. In nine previous matchups between the two college football titans, Texas - and not Alabama - holds a decided edge with a 7-1-1 record. It'll be the Crimson Tide returning the favor in Tuscaloosa on September 9, 2023.

The blue blood programs will meet for the first time since the Crimson Tide beat Colt McCoy and the Longhorns in the 2010 BCS National Championship Game.

With the Crimson Tide on the schedule, Texas also announced it has canceled a home game with UCF that had been slated for 2023.

Credit the program for listening to the requests of their fans and doing something about it. The Longhorns will host the Buckeyes on August 30, 2025, and travel to Columbus on September 5, 2026. The two programs mutually agreed to push the dates of their home-and-home series from 2022 and 2023 to 2025 and 2026.

In addition, Texas has added a home game against UTEP on September 19, 2020, and canceled a home game against UCF scheduled for September 9, 2023. In addition to their win in 2016, the Longhorns won games in 1930, 1933, 2008, and 2009. UTEP will visit Austin on September 19, 2020.
