NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Tim Tebow rose above all the distractions
caused by coach Urban Meyer's uncertain future and capped a storied
college career with his finest performance.
It was the best in BCS history, too.
Tebow threw for a career-high 482 yards and three touchdowns,
ran for 51 yards and another score, and fifth-ranked Florida
overwhelmed No. 4 Cincinnati 51-24 Friday night in the Sugar Bowl.
For Tebow and the Gators (13-1), this certainly was The Big
Florida's most anticipated season ever ended in New Orleans
instead of Pasadena. It came against Cincinnati (13-1) instead of
Texas. It was about redemption instead of perfection.
None of that mattered in the Louisiana Superdome. Tebow wouldn't let it. He finished with 533 total yards - more than anyone in Bowl
Championship Series history.
