JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Florida quarterback Tim Tebow has broken Herschel Walker's Southeastern Conference record for rushing touchdowns.

Tebow slipped up the middle and ran mostly untouched for a 23-yard score with 1:32 remaining in the first half against Georgia. The 50th rushing TD of his career gave the top-ranked Gators a 24-10 halftime lead.

Tebow broke the mark in his hometown, and maybe more fittingly, against Walker's Bulldogs.

The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner had eight rushing TDs as a freshman in 2006, 23 in his Heisman-winning season in 2007 and found the end zone 12 more times last season. He now has seven this year.

I'm not usually the grammar

I'm not usually the grammar police, but the number of mistakes the online chronicle has made recently is ridiculous. "Tebow break's Walker's record" -- the headline from the 'lastest news' section on the homepage. Give me a break! (or in this case "breaks") I'm sure there are plenty of qualified professionals that need a job. If you can't spell or use apostrophes appropriately, then you shouldn't be working for a newspaper!
