Alabama and Texas announced a home-and-home series Wednesday that will feature games during the 2022 and 2023 seasons. The first game will feature the Crimson Tide traveling to Austin, Texas, for a game September 10, 2022, with the Longhorns making the return trip to Tuscaloosa a year later on September 9, 2023. The Longhorns will return the trip to Tuscaloosa on September 9 in 2023.

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.

With Texas on its future schedule, Alabama is now scheduled to play nonconference opponents Louisville (2018), Duke (2019), Miami (2021) and Notre Dame (2028-29). Texas holds a 7-1-1 series advantage between the two college football powerhouses. They didn't meet until 2005, but have met three times over the last 13 years, including a home-and-home series in 2005 and 2006. The two programs mutually agreed to push the dates of their home-and-home series from 2022 and 2023 to 2025 and 2026.
