Florida Gators vs Cincinati Saturday 02nd January All State Sugar Bowl

The last game of the season would be the All State Sugar Bowl at the Louisianna Superdome against Cincinnati.

Tebow would begin his final game in style, completing seven of his pass attempts as part of a 13 play 84 yard touchdown drive, with a final seven yard touchdown pass to Aaron Hernandez. Caleb Sturgis added the extra point and the Gators held a 9-0 lead.

Second Quarter: On their next possession Florida would march downfield on a 64 yard drive ending in another touchdown pass to Denote Thompson. A further touchdown from Emmanuel Moody gave the Gators a 23-0 lead before Cincinnati got on the board. This came from a 47 yard field goal. The Gators and Tebow responded immediately with a pass to Riley Cooper with and 80 yard touchdown strike. This gave the Gators a 30-3 lead at half time.

Third Quarter: Moody would add a second touchdown run early in the third quarter before Cincinnati would get their own touchdown pass. Marcus Waugh scoring the reduce the lead to 37-10. Tim Tebow would score his own touchdown just before the break, a 4 yard run giving the Gators a 44-10 lead.

Fourth Quarter: The Bearcats would score the first points of the final quarter through a 74 yard drive with Tony Pike passing to Armon Binns. The Gators responded straight away when Chris Rainey scored a 6 yard touchdown run. This meant final scores were 51-17 to the Gators, and the Sugar Bowl win.
