The Crimson Tide barely survived with a 20-19 win over Texas on Saturday.

Longhorn controlled the bulk of the early Window game,

But some fourth-quarter magic from Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young

And Texas's few missed opportunities allowed Alabama to eventually score a victory.

When asked where Texas would end up in the SEC standings after the game, Saban had this to say about UT:

"It's like playing an SEC game on the street. They're going to be in the SEC.

If they were in the SEC now, they would probably be in the top half of the league.

Texas' defense was formidable for so long in the afternoon

And the prospect of sealing the deal and getting his program back on the map was far from missed.

But as Saban said, these two will see a lot more of each other in the years to come.
