Longhorns gaining confidence, but is it too late?

PASADENA, Calif. -- Freshman quarterback Garrett Gilbert orchestrated a scoring drive, pulling Texas within 24-13 after three quarters.

You can see the Longhorns gaining confidence. Gilbert fired a 44-yard TD pass to Jordan Shipley to account for the only points since the break.

Alabama didn't produce a first down in the third quarter as the Longhorns outgained the Tide, 116-3.

Texas defensive end/linebacker Sergio Kindle has had a monster game with seven tackles, 2.5 sacks and 3.5 tackles for losses.

The Longhorns have Alabama pinned deep in its own territory. They need a big play to capitalize.
