Gameday 2.jpg

The barometer for head coach Steve Sarkisian and the Texas Football program begins its reading on Saturday as the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide head to Darrell K. Royal Stadium in Austin.  While the Longhorns lead the Tide all-time in wins (7-1-1), Nick Saban's team has dominated college football for the last 10 years, appearing in 7 national championship games and winning five of them.

Alabama is favored by roughly 20 points, in a contest that little to none give Texas a chance at pulling off the upset win.  The stakes are high in the 11:00 am kickoff, particularly for Texas, which looks to prove that they are an improved team under year two of Sarkisian.  Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young leads a prolific Alabama offense, while on the Texas side, the highly touted Quinn Ewers looks to prove he can make an impact at quarterback early on in his career on The 40 Acres.

Regardless of the outcome, this is the biggest game that has taken place in Austin in half a decade.  Most expect the Longhorns to lose, but a win would do wonders for Sarkisian and the Texas program.

Historically the Longhorns are 5-11 against the #1 ranked team, including 2-2 over their last four games.
