Tuscaloosa News reports that the Alabama Crimson Tide has decided to place all 5,000 seats for the Texas Longhorns’ band and its fans in the upper deck of Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa this weekend.
From Tuscaloosa News: “Texas isn’t in the SEC just yet, which means the SEC’s regulation for tickets for visitors doesn’t apply for the Alabama football matchup vs. the Longhorns this week at Bryant-Denny Stadium.”
This, of course, is karma for Texas.
“We are able to reciprocate a similar seating arrangement to what we had last year in Austin,” Alabama athletics director Greg Byrne reportedly told the outlet earlier this week.
