Alabama, Texas to play in 2022 and 2023 (copy)

Said Byrne "That's a good thing for Alabama football it's a good thing for our community for our state and I think our fans will be really excited for those down the road".

The Longhorns will host the first matchup on September 10, 2022, the school announced.

Texas will bring the Crimson Tide to Austin in 2022.

As if being left out of last season's College Football Playoff national championship weren't enough, Central Florida fans became the bridesmaid to Alabama again on Wednesday as the Knights' 2023 matchup with Texas was canceled so the Longhorns could make room for the Tide. Texas typically only schedules home games or two-for-one games with non-Power 5 opponents. The two schools have only met three times on their traditional home fields - the last coming in 1922. Texas holds a 7-1-1 series advantage between the two college football powerhouses. All matchups since the 1947 Sugar Bowl have come in postseason appearances.




Texas is in the middle of a home-and-home series with USC and Maryland, and will play future series against LSU (2019-20) and MI (2024, '27), among others, according to FBSSchedules.com. The Longhorns have a 7-1-1 lead in the all-time series.

This news has an impact on a few other programs. Texas and Ohio State, originally scheduled to meet in 2022-23, have mutually agreed to reschedule for the 2025-26 seasons.

The Longhorns have also canceled a potentially-notable game.

Texas tossed in an announced home game against UTEP in 2020 to this release. Texas will host the first game, and head to Columbus for the second.
