UCF football game at Texas scheduled for 2023 canceled

Alabama announced Wednesday morning that it will play Texas in a home-and-home series early in the 2022 and 2023 seasons.

"It's been almost 100 years since Alabama has visited Austin and over a century since the Longhorns have traveled to Tuscaloosa, so we're looking forward to it", Alabama athletics director Greg Byrne said in a release.

Alabama and Texas last met in the BCS National Championship Game on January 7, 2010. Alabama will travel to Texas in 2022 with the teams meeting in Tuscaloosa the following year. "It's been almost 100 years since Alabama has visited Austin and over a century since the Longhorns have traveled to Tuscaloosa, so we're looking forward to it".

"We are pleased and happy to be able to add an opponent the caliber of the University of Texas to our non-conference schedule", Alabama head coach Nick Saban said in a press release. Said Byrne "Announced the Texas deal that was a big get for our program to have Texas come in to Bryant Denny Stadium in the future". Texas holds a 7-1-1 edge in the series with six meetings coming in bowl games. The Longhorns will push a home-and-home series with Ohio State from those years back to 2025-2026.

The scheduling of this series, however, also means another high-profile home-and-home involving UT has been adjusted.

UTEP will meet Texas once again on the gridiron on September 19, 2020, according to information released by the University of Texas.

The last time the two teams faced off was in 2010 at the National Championship Game at the Rose Bowl.
