It was a close one for the Texas Longhorns this past weekend. And even despite the loss, there was something that felt good, good, very good about walking away from the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide with just a single point standing in between the two programs.

Alabama head coach Nick Saban recognized what Texas put on the field.

“This is like playing an SEC game on the road,” Saban said of the Longhorns, per Dallas Morning News. “They’re going to be in the SEC. If they were in the SEC now, they’d probably in the top half of the league.”
