It is going to be very strange watching Florida football and not seeing the hyper and very talented No. 15 not throwing and running the ball from the quarterback position. Yet, Florida fans only have one more time to see Tim tebow in The Swamp. Here he is talking about the Gators romp over FIU.

It was one of Tim Tebow's better performances of his career capped by the longest run of his career on Saturday. He completed a 55-yard run to score a touchdown with 9:18 left in the first quarter. The run marked the longest by a quarterback since Chris Leak ran 45 yards against Alabama on Sept. 30, 2006 in the 28-13 UF win.

The run was actually a pass play that Tebow saw no open receivers and because he wasn't accounted for, he took off running. He recorded 102 rushing yards on the day, tallying more than 100 rushing yards for the fifth time in his career. He also registered 215 passing yards, tallying his 22nd 200-yard passing game, tying John Reaves (1969-71) for fifth most in school history.

The first-quarter Tebow score helped him surpass LSU’s Kevin Faulk (1995-98) to move into sole possession of first place in SEC record books with 54 career touchdowns (rushing and receiving combined). With his two touchdown passes on the day, Tebow tied Ole Miss’s Eli Manning (2000-03) for fourth in SEC history with 81 career touchdowns throws.

Tebow talks about his record setting day and about his few moments left to cherish in The Swamp right here in this video...
