Game of the Century: Alabama vs. Florida 2009


tim tebow cried 

The 2009 SEC Championship Game was supposed to be the game of the century. It was yet another rematch between the Gators and the Tide.

In 2008, both teams came into the championship game undefeated, but behind Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow, the Gators would win 30-21.

This time it would be the Gators coming in as the No. 1 team in the country and the Tide No. 2, but before the night was over, it would be Alabama celebrating their 22nd SEC Title as they defeated the Gators 32-13 on their way to winning their 13th national championship.

There was lots of highlights in this game that most Alabama fans can still remember vividly. The play that Greg McElroy hopped 3 times for nearly 10 yards for a first down was very typical of the laser-focus of the players in this game. Mark Ingram had the near-TD screen play catch that went the length of the field for 69 yards. He finished the day in spectacular fashion with 3 TDs and 189 total yards total. Another great play was the leaping, backward-leaning Javier Arenas interception of Tim Tebow that stopped a potential touchdown in the red-zone. Then there was the over-the-shoulder catch by Colin Peek. The game was full of highlight reel plays that Bama fans will never forget.

Best of all... It was also the game that made Tim Tebow cry. 🙂

Correction on the 2008 record of Florida. They had lost to Ole Miss midway through the regular season 31-30 and if I’m not mistaken, they were ranked #4 in the nation while Alabama was ranked #1.
