The Alabama Crimson Tide and the Texas Longhorns have officially confirmed a future home-and-home series between the two historic powerhouse programs.
“We are pleased and happy to be able to add an opponent the caliber of the University of Texas to our non-conference schedule. The Crimson Tide and Longhorns have played a lot of memorable games over the years and the addition of this home-and-home series will be great for not only our fans, but fans of college football.” Nick Saban, per RollTide.com
Neither team has visited the other schools' home turf in decades (Alabama last played in Austin in 1922, the Longhorns haven't played in Tuscaloosa since 1902). The first game is slated to be played in September of 2022 in Austin, and the second game will take place in Tuscaloosa in 2023. Interestingly enough, Texas canceled a game against UCF in 2023, that was scheduled for the same day that the newly announced Alabama game will take place.
