Some people are just planners. Apparently the Texas Longhorns and Ohio State Buckeyes fall under that category, as the two schools announced a home-and-home series on Wednesday that will be played in 2022 and 2023. Yeah, those aren't typos, though they feel odd to type.
The Longhorns will host the Buckeyes on the first date, then travel to Columbus the following year.
Two of the most stories programs in college football, the 'Horns and Bucks had never met on the field prior to the showdown in Columbus in 2005 that propelled Vince Young and Texas to the national championship thanks to the incredible grab by wide receiver Limas Sweed and a host of other equally awesome plays.
Then, of course, there was the meeting in the Fiesta Bowl after the 2008 season, capped by Quan Cosby's dive into the endzone that secured the victory and provided some momentum heading into the quest for the roses the following year.
And even though the 2006 loss wasn't close at the end, the other two games were absolute classics.
One question, though. How many times will Urban Meyer retire and un-retire before that game in Austin in 2022?
