Thomas' interception stalls A&M drive

November, 26, 2009
COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas' Earl Thomas got his eighth interception -- the most by any Longhorn player in one season (breaking a 69-year-old record) -- to end what looked like a scoring drive for Texas A&M.

With Texas leading 35-21, A&M was inside the red zone when Jerrod Johnson's pass to Jeff Fuller ended up in Thomas' hands in the corner of the end zone.

The Aggies stopped Texas and now have the ball back at midfield with 3:39 left in the third quarter.
