Young, No. 1 Alabama escape Texas on late FG 20-19

Texas 34-24 victory Alabama


AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Will Reichard kicked a 33 yard field goal with 10 seconds left and No. 1 Alabama and Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Bryce Young overcame a stifling defensive effort by Texas to earn a hard-fought 20-19 victory Saturday.

Young has hit and harassed by the Texas defense most of the game but had a big fourth quarter with an off-balance touchdown pass a 20-yard run to set up the winning kick.

Texas lost starting quarterback Quinn Ewers to a shoulder in the first quarter but rode an inspired defense and four field goals from Bert Auburn to a late-game lead.
