Texas and Alabama schedule future home-and-home series in 2022, 2023

A UCF football game at Texas scheduled for September 9, 2023, has been canceled, closing out the agreement between the two schools. It'll be the Crimson Tide returning the favor in Tuscaloosa on September 9, 2023.

The first game will take place in Austin, Texas, on September 10, 2022 with the Longhorns making a return trip to Tuscaloosa the following year. The two programs mutually agreed to push the dates of their home-and-home series from 2022 and 2023 to 2025 and 2026. Now, that series will be played in 2025-26. 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. Alabama won 37-21, but most UT fans remember it as the game quarterback Colt McCoy was injured on the fifth play of the night. The last meeting on either school's home field was in 1922, when Alabama traveled to Austin. All matchups since the 1947 Sugar Bowl have come in postseason appearances.

Texas has also announced a home game against UTEP in 2020, but no one will be talking about that one.

With the addition of the home-and-home series with the Crimson Tide, Texas has been forced to cancel a 2023 home game with UCF - the self-proclaimed reigning national champions.

In 2020, Texas is scheduled to play South Florida (Sept. 5), at LSU (Sept. 12) and now UTEP (Sept. 19). Prior to Alabama's scheduled series with Texas and Notre Dame, the Tide had only participated in one during the Saban era, sweeping Penn State in 2010-11.
