Alabama, Texas announce home-and-home series for 2022-23


Said Byrne "That's a good thing for Alabama football it's a good thing for our community for our state and I think our fans will be really excited for those down the road". The Longhorns will have first hosting duties, with Alabama set to travel to Austin on September 10, 2022.

Texas will bring the Crimson Tide to Austin in 2022.

The 2022 game will be the 10th all-time meeting between two of college football's most storied programs, and will be the first since Alabama knocked off Texas 37-21 to claim the 2009 BCS National Championship in Pasadena, California. The Crimson Tide will then host the Longhorns at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa on September 9, 2023. The traditional college football powers have only met three times on their home fields with the last coming in Austin in 1922. They didn't meet until 2005, but have met three times over the last 13 years, including a home-and-home series in 2005 and 2006.
