College Football Saturday: History Not On Alabama’s Side Against Texas, Vols Face Huge Test, Can Kentucky Stop Anthony Richardson?

Wake up … it’s Week 2 of the college football season and I hear we have a SPICY showdown in Texas with some team from Alabama.

The Longhorns host the top-ranked Crimson Tide in today’s marquee college football showdown.

Fox’s Big Noon Kickoff will be on the scene all morning, with OutKick founder Clay Travis on the ground and ready to roll. 

The game is set for a crisp noon kickoff on Fox and Alabama, as always, is a massive favorite.

This is the first meeting between the two schools since Alabama beat Texas, 37-21, in the 2010 BCS National Championship game. However, it’s the Longhorns who have dominated the series historically.

Texas is 7-1-1 all-time against Alabama, winning the first game back in 1902 (the golden age of college football, I hear). The two programs tied, 3-3, in the 1960 Bluebonnet Bowl.

Something tells me we’ll have a few more points this afternoon. 

Elsewhere, No. 24 Tennessee heads to No. 17 Pittsburgh, No. 20 Kentucky will try to slow down Anthony Richardson and the 12th-ranked Florida Gators, and No. 9 Baylor takes on No. 21 BYU.

As always, we have an absolutely LOADED slate of college football games today. Pour the coffee, fire up the grill, put the Busch Light on ice and take a seat.

Let’s roll.

He swears they were going 200 mph even though they clearly were not.
