Texas quarterback Garrett Gilbert saw a personal streak of 33 consecutive victories as a starting quarterback end with last week’s 34-12 loss to UCLA. But he said he learned a lot in his first defeat since his high school days. What did he learn?
Gilbert said the Longhorns have “got a ways to go” as an offense, with the first orders of business being to “protect the ball better and.....finish drives.” Gilbert, who has thrown four interceptions in the last two games, placed most of the blame himself.
“Being my own toughest critic, I feel like there was a lot of stuff that I could have done a lot better for our team,” Gilbert said. “Taking it from the film and applying it to Oklahoma is what matters.”
