Avery Johnson and the Crimson Tide hit the road for their first true away test of the season, as Alabama rolls into Austin, Texas to take on Shaka Smart and the Longhorns. Texas, fresh off of a top-5 signing class, is in a bit of a rut right now, as their talented youngsters have struggled a bit to replace all five starters from last season. But, as stated, this is a really talented team, and they are led by a great coach. This will be a very good test for the Tide.
The game tips at 8:30 PM CST and will be televised on ESPNU.
