Tebow, Florida rout Cincinnati in Sugar Bowl

  • Follow Latest News

NEW ORLEANS – 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 Easy.

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 532 total yards – more than anyone in Bowl Championship Series history.
