Alabama, Texas agree to games in 2022-23

17 May 2018

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. The Longhorns will have first hosting duties, with Alabama set to travel to Austin on September 10, 2022.

Having last met in the 2009 National Championship Game at the Rose Bowl, the Longhorns and Crimson Tide have played nine times dating back to 1902 with Texas holding a 7-1-1 series advantage. The Crimson Tide will then host the Longhorns at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa on September 9, 2023. "This will certainly be a great opportunity for our program and our fans".

Last month, Alabama and Notre Dame announced a home-and-home series for the 2028 and 2029 seasons, with the first of those matchups hosted by the Fighting Irish in South Bend, Ind.

Following up on reports that surfaced in late March, both Alabama, the fifth-winningest school in NCAA history with 891 wins, and Texas, tied for No. 2 with 898, announced that the two football programs have officially finalized a future home-and-home series.

Because of this agreement, Texas and Ohio State have moved their previously scheduled home-and-home series back to 2025 (Austin) and 2026 (Columbus).

That is the big question ahead of Wednesday's friendly between Mamelodi Sundowns and Barcelona . Barcelona got off to the flawless start thanks to Ousmane Dembele in the third minute.

Central Florida had been scheduled to play at Texas on September 9, 2023, but that matchup has been canceled.

Texas has also added a home game against the UTEP Miners.

The fans need this and it's beneficial for the teams to boost their strength of schedule to help present their best case possible for the fickle College Football Playoff committee that changes their metrics every year to see who plays for the national title.

Almost a century after the two college powers met in Austin, they will square off at DKR Memorial Stadium on September 10th, 2022.
