Texas football to play Alabama in home-and-home series in 2022

Louisville vs. Alabama Set for 8:00 pm Kickoff on ABC

Alabama and Texas football have announced a home-and-home series for the 2022 and '23 seasons, the schools announced on Wednesday.

The Longhorns will host the Crimson Tide on September 10, 2022 and will travel to Tuscaloosa to play Alabama again on September 9, 2023. That will be the first true road game in non-conference play for the Crimson Tide since 2011. Texas holds a 7-1-1 series advantage between the two college football powerhouses. We've collected a sampling of the reactions below.

Texas will bring the Crimson Tide to Austin in 2022. 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. They have met in six bowl games since then.

The two teams have combined for 20 AP or Coaches national titles, 1,789 all-time victories, 122 consensus All-Americans (54 unanimous), four Heisman winners and 29 College Football Hall of Fame inductees.

As a result, UCF ended up with a rare home-and-home series with the Longhorns.

This news has an impact on a few other programs.

A game against Central Florida, scheduled for 2023, has also been cancelled, the school said.

Texas has also added a home game against the UTEP Miners. There's no telling what the Knights will be in five years, but obviously the team went undefeated this year. Said Byrne "Announced the Texas deal that was a big get for our program to have Texas come in to Bryant Denny Stadium in the future". Texas and Ohio State, originally scheduled to meet in 2022-23, have mutually agreed to reschedule for the 2025-26 seasons. Texas will host the first game, and head to Columbus for the second.
