Alabama and Texas have announced a home-and-home series.
The series will begin in Austin on September 10, 2022 with the Longhorns making the trip to Tuscaloosa on September 9, 2023. This series will be the first matchup between the two programs since the 2010 BCS National Championship game in which Alabama bested the Longhorns 37-21. Texas leads the all time series (7-1-1.)
When Alabama takes the trip to Austin on September 10, 2022 it will be their first true out-of-conference road game since playing Penn State on September 10, 2011. No, that is not a typo. If Alabama’s current schedules hold, their trip to Austin will be their first true road game in 11 years.
This home-and-home series marks the second marquee matchup Alabama has planned for the future. Earlier this April, Alabama and Notre Dame announced a home-and-home series set for 2028 and 2029.
This could be a sign that the neutral site games with marquee programs are slowly shifting to going back to home-and-homes. AD Phillip Fulmer has mentioned that he’s not a fan of the neutral site games and wants to bring big matchups to Knoxville.
