Texas vs Alabama, Prediction & Picks: Can Texas Roll the Tide? cover


College Gameday is in Tuscaloosa as the Alabama Crimson Tide host the Texas Longhorns.

This Top 25 Showdown is a repeat of last season’s thriller 20-19 thriller in Austin. Alabama snuck away with a win, but an injury to Quinn Ewers might’ve helped them out.

This time around, Ewers goes to Alabama to lead the Longhorns to their revenge.

Let’s break this game down!

Can Ewers Lead Longhorns to Road Revenge?

Texas Alabama Prediction Picks

Bryce Young and the Tide arguably “escaped” with a win at Texas last year as Ewers suffered a 1st half injury and never returned.

The Longhorns easily covered the 20 point spread, but would’ve really liked to pull the upset. This Saturday, the #11 Longhorns travel to Tuscaloosa to take on #3 Alabama.

College Gameday is there, and all eyes will be on these two teams Saturday Night.

This is a must win game for Steve Sarkisian and the Longhorns, but I think they come up short against Alabama Saturday Night.

The Pick: Alabama -7 (-110) Bovada

Will We See a Shootout?

Texas Alabama Prediction Picks

With a total sitting at 54, I think I lean towards the under. Sure Alabama score 56 and Texas score 37, but against each other I think the game becomes much more defensive.

Look for Alabama to slow down Ewers while the Longhorns defense looks to do the same. I’m sure we will see some playmaking on both sides of the ball, but I think we see a 21-17 game, very similar to last year.

The Pick: Texas/Alabama Under 54 (-110) Bovada
