Texas football will play a home-and-home nonconference series with Alabama in 2022-2023, the school announced Wednesday.
The Longhorns will host the Crimson Tide on Sept. 10, 2022 and will travel to Tuscaloosa to play Alabama again on Sept. 9, 2023. Texas and Ohio State have also agreed to move their home-and-home series, which was originally scheduled for 2022-2023, to 2025-2026 in order to make room for the new series. Texas also canceled its 2023 home game with UCF, which was scheduled for the week it will now travel to play at Alabama.
Texas and Alabama have not played one another in a non-neutral site matchup since they met in Austin in 1922. They have met in six bowl games since then. The Longhorns have a 7-1-1 lead in the all-time series. The schools are tied for second all-time in NCAA history with 898 wins apiece.
The two programs last faced each other in the BCS National Championship game at the Rose Bowl after the 2009 season. Alabama won that game 37-21 for Nick Saban’s first title as the coach of the Crimson Tide.
