No. 4 Gators Hope to Limit Tebow's Carries Against Auburn

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Tim Tebow was a little more sore than usual this week, and understandably so.

Florida's star quarterback ran 27 times for 166 yards last Saturday at Mississippi, setting a school record and causing teammates, coaches and most Florida fans to cringe with every hit.

Coach Urban Meyer wants to make sure it doesn't happen again.

He plans to limit Tebow's touches in the future, beginning Saturday when the fourth-ranked Gators (4-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) host Auburn (2-2, 0-1).

Meyer says their number one goal is to win the game by any means necessary, but also not put the players at risk.

Especially not Tebow, the sophomore sensation who has accounted for 17 of the team's 27 touchdowns this season.
