Texas, Alabama schedule home-and-home football series

Will Saban still be the coach of the Crimson Tide?

The Longhorns and Crimson Tide have not met since the 2009 national championship game.

In a major football scheduling announcement, Texas announced Wednesday it has reached a home-and-home agreement to play Alabama in the 2022 and 2023 seasons. The Longhorns and Crimson Tide will face off in 2022 and 2023. However, the two teams have only met three times on their respective home fields. The Longhorns will host the first game and travel to Tuscaloosa for the following game. The bowl matchups have taken place in the 1947 Sugar Bowl, 1960 Bluebonnet Bowl, 1964 Orange Bowl, 1972 and 1982 Cotton Bowls and most recently the 2010 Rose Bowl. The schools, among the most storied programs in college football, have met nine times dating to 1902 with Texas holding a 7-1-1 advantage. It's not only a juicy matchup on paper between two of college football's premier programs, but it's a win for fans as well. Texas and USC are in the middle of a home-and-home, but Alabama last left Tuscaloosa for a series like this in 2011 when it played Penn State.

This news has an impact on a few other programs.

Also on Wednesday, Texas announced that UTEP has been added to the 2020 schedule.

The Knights' final road game in the series repeatedly was pushed back until Texas announced the finale was canceled. Texas typically only schedules home games or two-for-one games with non-Power 5 opponents.

As a side note, Texas and Ohio State are pushing back their nonconference games, originally scheduled for those years, to 2025 and 2026. Texas will host the first game, and head to Columbus for the second.
