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


APNewsNow.Texas and Alabama, which last met in 2010 Rose Bowl, will play each other in 2022 and 2023. It'll be the Crimson Tide returning the favor in Tuscaloosa on September 9, 2023.

Alabama has finalized a home-and-home series with another big-name program.

The Longhorns will host the first matchup on September 10, 2022, the school announced. "The Crimson Tide and Longhorns have played a lot of memorable games over the years and the addition of this home-and-home series will be great for not only our fans, but fans of college football". 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. The last meeting between Texas and Alabama went to the Tide, who claimed the national title 37-21 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

Texas and Ohio State, originally scheduled to meet in 2022-23, have mutually agreed to reschedule for the 2025-26 seasons. The Longhorns will host the Buckeyes on August 30, 2025 and travel to Columbus on September 5, 2026. Texas also canceled its 2023 home game with UCF, which was scheduled for the week it will now travel to play at Alabama. That game has been canceled.

Both schools announced the major news on Wednesday morning.

In 2020, Texas is scheduled to play South Florida (Sept. 5), at LSU (Sept. 12) and now UTEP (Sept. 19).
