Texas will bring the Crimson Tide to Austin in 2022.

The Tide won the most recent game, though, its win over Texas in the 2010 BCS national championship game.

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. Depending on how Tom Herman has turned around Texas, these two games could be truly massive.

In the first game of the series, Alabama will travel to face Texas at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin on September 10, 2022. The last meeting on either school's home field was in 1922, when Alabama traveled to Austin.

Texas (898/2nd NCAA) and Alabama (891/5th NCAA) have combined to play 248 years of football and post 1,789 all-time victories. All matchups since the 1947 Sugar Bowl have come in postseason appearances. Overall, Alabama and Texas have met nine times with the Longhorns holding a 7-1-1 lead. UT is scheduled to play MI in a home-and-home series in 2024 and 2027.

This news has an impact on a few other programs.

The Knights' final road game in the series repeatedly was pushed back until Texas announced the finale was canceled.

Texas has also announced a home game against UTEP in 2020, but no one will be talking about that one. Texas typically only schedules home games or two-for-one games with non-Power 5 opponents.

Texas and Ohio State were scheduled to play a home-and-home football series in 2022 and 2023, but the two schools will now meet in 2025 and 2026.

Texas is second in the NCAA with 898 all-time wins.
