Arenas' interception kills Texas drive
By ESPN.com staff
PASADENA, Calif. -- Texas' offense finally clicked under freshman Garrett Gilbert, but Javier Arenas' interception snuffed out the drive at the Alabama 25.
Texas got some life when D.J. Monroe raced 28 yards on a reverse. On the play before the interception, Gilbert appeared to have Malcolm Williams in the end zone, but the sophomore wide receiver couldn't make a tough catch in the end zone.
The drive should give Gilbert some confidence, although it was a tough learning experience to finish the drive as they still trail, 14-6.
