According to the University of Texas, the Longhorns will host Bama on September 10, 2022, at the Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium and then travel to Tuscaloosa, Alabama on September 9, 2023, to face off against them on their home turf - the Bryant-Denny Stadium.

The deal with Texas adds to a tough future non-conference schedule which began with the addition of Notre Dame earlier in the spring. The Crimson Tide will then host the Longhorns at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa on September 9, 2023.

The 2022 matchup will be the 10th meeting between the two and the first since the Crimson Tide defeated the Longhorns 37-21 in the BCS National Championship Game at the conclusion of the 2009 season. 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. "This will certainly be a great opportunity for our program and our fans".

"We're thrilled to be able to add another incredible non-conference opponent with the University of Texas for a home-and-home series", Alabama athletics director Greg Byrne said in a release. The Longhorns will push a home-and-home series with Ohio State from those years back to 2025 and 2026. The Longhorns will host the Buckeyes on August 30, 2025 and travel to Columbus on September 5, 2026.

Texas officials announced the agreement Wednesday.

The scheduling of this series, however, also means another high-profile home-and-home involving UT has been adjusted. UTEP will visit Austin on September 19, 2020.
