CRAWFORD | Louisville gets prime-time ABC slot for season-opener vs. Alabama

Grant SmithMay 18, 2018

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 Crimson Tide will once again be the favorite to win the national championship in 2018 while Louisville might be in a bit of a rebuilding mode following the departure of former Heisman Trophy victor Lamar Jackson to the NFL.

Alabama, which recently added home-and-home series with Texas and Notre Dame, has made it a recent tradition to open up with a Power 5 opponent at a neutral site.

As for the Alabama-Texas all-time series, the teams first met in Tuscaloosa in 1902, followed by games in Austin in 1915 and '22.

Texas will host the Crimson Tide on September 10, 2022, before traveling to Tuscaloosa on September 9, 2023, for the return leg of their series. "The Crimson Tide and Longhorns have played a lot of memorable games over the years and the addition of this home-and-home series will be great for not only our fans, but fans of college football".

The Longhorns have set dates to play the leading SEC team, The University of Alabama, in 2022 and 2023.

The network announced its schedule for the first three weeks of Saturday night games. The Crimson Tide meets Louisville in Orlando, Florida, at 8 p.m. ET on September 1. But if he has, something tells me there will be a special appearance by the greatest college football coach of all time to commemorate the 2010 national title.

The last time these teams hooked up, the Crimson Tide thrashed USC 52-6 in the 2016 opener.
