Defense shines as Tebow, Gators down Tigers

BY foxsports • October 11, 2009

Tim Tebow arrived at raucous Death Valley ready to play. Then No. 1 Florida's defense left No. 4 LSU in a daze.

Two weeks after suffering a concussion, Tebow - with plenty of help from the Gators' swarming defense - silenced the largest crowd in the history of Tiger Stadium with a 13-3 victory Saturday night.

The day began with Tebow's status uncertain for what looked like the defending national champions' toughest regular-season test.

"I'm feeling great," Tebow said. "The doctors did a great job. I just want to thank them for the work they put in on me the last two weeks, our trainers, and then all the fans that were praying for me."
