Texas and Alabama last played in the 2010 BCS national championship game, the Crimson Tide's only victory in the series.
In a major football scheduling announcement, Texas announced Wednesday it has reached a home-and-home agreement to play Alabama in the 2022 and 2023 seasons.
Games between Alabama and Texas, two blue-bloods, have been a rarity to say the least.
They will play September 10, 2022 in Texas and September 9, 2023 in Alabama. All matchups since the 1947 Sugar Bowl have come in postseason appearances.

Texas and Ohio State last met in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl in 2009. 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. Texas holds a 7-1-1 edge in the series with six meetings coming in bowl games. 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.
This news has an impact on a few other programs.
Texas has also announced a home game against UTEP in 2020, but no one will be talking about that one. There's no telling what the Knights will be in five years, but obviously the team went undefeated this year. Texas typically only schedules home games or two-for-one games with non-Power 5 opponents.
To accommodate this series Texas and Ohio State have mutually agreed to push back the dates of their home-and-home series from 2022 and 2023 to 2025 and 2026.
