Both College GameDay and Big Noon Saturday will be on-hand for the non-conference matchup, a rematch of the 2010 national championship game that seemingly sent both teams on different trajectories. Over the last decade, Alabama has been one of the most dominant dynasties in college football history, while the Longhorns are on their third coach and hoping the third time is the charm.
Following the win over ULM, Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian stressed trying to keep things as normal as possible heading into the matchup, but now the true test of managing the noise begins. Texas, heading into Saturday as double-digit underdogs, has an opportunity to pull off a massive upset and change the trajectory again.
