Alabama and Texas announced a home-and-home series Wednesday that will feature games during the 2022 and 2023 seasons. It’s not only a juicy matchup on paper between two of college football’s premier programs, but it’s a win for fans as well.
After all, college football is better when brand-name programs meet early in the season. The Crimson Tide will visit Austin, Texas, for the first game on Sept. 10, 2022, with the Longhorns slated to make the return trip to Tuscaloosa on Sept. 9, 2023. It will be the first games between the teams since Alabama beat Texas for the 2009 national title.
As expected, there were multiple opinions about Alabama and Texas scheduling this series. We’ve collected a sampling of the reactions below.

Alabama and Texas announce a home and home in 2022 & 2023. Awesome news. Will Nick Saban coach both teams by then?

In the last few weeks, Alabama football has announced upcoming home and home football series with Notre Dame and Texas.
In said time frame UGA has added Indiana State to the 2023 football schedule and merely flirted with Clemson idea.
I'm once again jealous of Alabama.

The reason this #Texas #Alabama series in 2022 (in Austin) and 2023 (in Tuscaloosa) is good besides the history of both programs and having played each other in a national game is it isn't on a neutral field.
Need to see more of this between Power 5 programs.
