The Alabama Crimson Tide and the Texas Longhorns have scheduled a home-and-home football series for 2022 and 2023, both schools announced on Wednesday. The Crimson Tide will then host the Longhorns at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa on September 9, 2023. It will mark the tenth time that the two programs have faced off on the gridiron.

The two programs boast a wealth of success and tradition, with the Longhorns ranking second on the all-time wins list, three spots ahead of the Crimson Tide. Alabama will travel to Austin in 2022, with Texas making the trip to Tuscaloosa the following year.

Texas (898/2nd NCAA) and Alabama (891/5th NCAA) have combined to play 248 years of football and post 1,789 all-time victories. The teams also met in the 1948 Sugar Bowl, 1960 Bluebonnet Bowl, 1965 Orange Bowl and 1973 and '82 Cotton Bowls, with the Tide winning their first game of the series in the 2010 BCS national championship game. The Longhorns played at Alabama in 1902, and the Crimson Tide traveled to Austin in 1915. Texas typically only schedules home games or two-for-one games with non-Power 5 opponents.

As a result of the Alabama-Texas series being scheduled, the Longhorns had to make several adjustments to their future schedules. Texas and Ohio State, originally scheduled to meet in 2022-23, have mutually agreed to reschedule for the 2025-26 seasons.
