Will Reichard connected on a 33-yard field goal with 10 seconds remaining to secure the win
AUSTIN, Texas – The No. 1/1 Alabama football team pulled out a 20-19 win over Texas Saturday at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin, Texas, on the strength of a 33-yard field goal by kicker Will Reichard with 10 seconds left on the game clock. With the win, the Crimson Tide goes to 2-0 on the season while the Longhorns drop to 1-1.
Reichard’s effort as time wound down marked the first game-winning field goal in the last 30-seconds of a game for Alabama during the Nick Saban era – and first such win since the 2006 campaign. Reichard opened the scoring in the first quarter with a 52-yard field goal, which matched his career long.
