Kickoff times and television selections for Texas’ three nonconference games were released on Thursday. As expected, the highly anticipated matchup between Texas and Alabama in Week 2 will kick off at 11 a.m. CT on FOX. The early afternoon start time will likely be an uncomfortably hot football game as temperatures could be close to triple-digits in Austin. In regards to the season opener on Sept. 3, the Longhorns will officially begin their 2022 season at 7 p.m. CT against Louisiana-Monroe on Longhorn Network. To close out the nonconference schedule, Texas will host UTSA for another night game at 7 p.m. CT, Sept. 17 on Longhorn Network.
