Game week has arrived for head coach Steve Sarkisian and the Texas football program against his former boss, legendary head coach Nick Saban and the No. 1 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide. Texas is set to host the reigning National Champion-runner up Alabama at home for the first meeting between these two teams since the 2010 BCS National Championship Game.

Sark and the Longhorns are coming into this game after convincingly beating head coach Terry Bowden and the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks at home on Sep. 3, by the final score of 52-10. That gives the Longhorns a record of 1-0 (0-0 Big 12) heading into this meeting with the Crimson Tide.

Meanwhile, Alabama comes into Week 2 after putting a beatdown of their own on a Group of Five opponent when they downed the Utah State Aggies at home in Tuscaloosa on Sep. 3 by the final score of 55-0. Alabama is also sporting a 1-0 (0-0 SEC) record for this big-time matchup in Austin.

Texas and Alabama are set to square off at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin on Sep. 10, with the kickoff time set for 11 a.m. CT.

Series history and preview between Texas football and Alabama

Texas and Alabama have faced each other nine times in the respective history of these two college football programs. The Longhorns have the edge in the all-time series against the Crimson Tide with a record of 7-1-1.

The last meeting between these two teams resulted in the 37-21 win for Alabama over Texas in the 2010 BCS National Championship Game. That BCS National Championship that saw star Texas quarterback Colt McCoy get injured early in the game would change the trajectory of these two programs for a little more than the next decade.

Moreover, it looks like both Texas and Alabama will be coming into this game pretty healthy on both sides. Aside from the injuries that Texas suffered during fall camp, it doesn’t look like anyone of note will be out for the Alabama game on Sep. 10.
