It happened. The Texas Longhorns traveled to Tuscaloosa and beat the Alabama Crimson Tide, making Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian the first former Alabama head coach Nick Saban assistant to beat him at home. (In 2021, Texas A&M Aggies head coach Jimbo Fisher became the first former Saban assistant to beat the Death Star that is Saban himself.)

Now, the calling for Saban’s coaching head begins.
