How big is Alabama’s home-and-home series with Texas?
A-Day and spring practice are behind us, but there are still plenty of questions to answer about Alabama football. The players are away from the team to focus on finishing classes, recovering and personal development before summer workouts begin. Here we’ll take a look at a question each day.

How big is the home-and-home series with Alabama football and Texas?
Honestly, this series is huge for Alabama football, Texas and college football in general. Texas may not be the powerhouse it once was under Mack Brown, but a lot can change in five years. The Crimson Tide and the Longhorns are two of the most recognizable brands in the sport, so there will be a ton of hype around this game.
Credit goes to Alabama athletic director Greg Byrne, Nick Saban, Texas’ athletic department and everyone else involved for making this official.
The first meeting will take place in Austin on Sept. 10, 2022. Texas makes the trip to Tuscaloosa on Sept. 9, 2023.
By all accounts, Austin is one of the top cities in the country so there should be plenty for Alabama fans to do when they make the trip.
The 2022 matchup will be the 10th meeting between two of college football’s most storied programs and the first since the Crimson Tide defeated the Longhorns, 37-21, in the BCS National Championship Game in Pasadena, Calif., at the conclusion of the 2009 season.
The best thing about this game is we will not have to question whether or not Colt McCoy getting hurt changed the outcome.
