Will Reichard saved the day for Alabama football at Texas.
The senior kicker from Hoover booted a 33-yard field goal with 10 seconds left to lift the Tide past the Longhorns, 20-19 on Saturday in Austin.
Alabama's offense, which struggled most of the day, orchestrated a nine-play, 61-yard drive in response to Texas' go-ahead field goal with 1:29 left. The drive was punctuated by Bryce Young's escape and scramble for 20 yards to the Longhorns' 17-yard line.
