The Alabama Crimson Tide will play the Texas Longhorns at DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin, Texas on Saturday afternoon.

The Alabama Crimson Tide are 1-0 this season after defeating Utah State by a score of 55-0 in Week 1. Alabama blew out the Aggies for the easy win and out gained them 559-136. Bryce Young threw for 195 yards, five touchdowns, and zero interceptions for the Crimson Tide. Young also rushed for 100 yards and one touchdown in the win. Jahmyr Gibbs rushed for 93 yards, while Traeshon Holden added five catches for 70 yards and two touchdowns for Alabama. The Alabama defense held Utah State to 57 passing yards and 79 rushing yards, while forcing one turnover.

The Texas Longhorns are 1-0 this season after defeating Louisiana-Monroe by a score of 52-10. Texas gave up a field goal in the first quarter, but didn’t give up anything else until just less than four minutes left in the game. Quinn Ewers threw for 225 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception for the Longhorns. Bijan Robinson rushed for 71 yards and one score, while Ja’Tavion Sanders caught six passes for 85 yards and one touchdown in the win. The Texas defense held ULM to 259 yards and forced one turnover.

Alabama is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games on fieldturf. The under is 4-1 in Alabama’s last 5 games. Texas is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 non-conference games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games. The under is 6-1 in Texas’ last 7 games.

Alabama absolutely destroyed Utah State and was able to pitch a shutout on defense. Texas blew out ULM, but the Longhorns defense did give up some yards. As good as the Alabama offense was, I was more impressed with their defense and I think they will shut the Texas offense down. This will be a huge test for Texas, especially with Quinn Ewers starting. I think the Texas defense will definitely struggle trying to contain Alabama as well. I like Alabama to pull away in the second half here.
