Tebow aims to improve Heisman Trophy chances

Nov 24, 2007 - 11:33 AM Florida St (7-4) at No. 12 Florida (8-3) 5:00 pm EST

GAINESVILLE, Florida (Ticker) -- Florida quarterback Tim Tebow has one more chance to impress the Heisman Trophy voters.

Tebow leads the 12th-ranked Gators into their regular-season finale on Saturday against Florida State.

With little at stake in what used to be one of the country's most important rivalries, most of the attention will be focused on Tebow, who is trying to become the first sophomore to win college football's most prestigious award.

In the last two weeks, Tebow has been a one-man wrecking crew, accounting for 11 touchdowns.

In last week's 59-20 victory over Florida Atlantic, Tebow became the first quarterback in the history of the Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division I-A) to rush for 20 touchdowns and pass for 20 touchdowns in the same season.

His 20 rushing TDs also established a Southeastern Conference single-season record.

Florida (8-3) is looking to end the regular season with a four-game winning streak and improve its bowl position.

Florida State (7-4), which has endured inconsistent quarterback play throughout the year, clinched its 31st consecutive winning season with last week's 24-16 win over Maryland. It also was Bobby Bowden's 300th victory as Seminoles coach.

The Seminoles will be trying to snap a three-game losing streak in a series Florida leads 30-19-1. It is Florida State's longest skid against the Gators since dropping six in a row from 1981-1986.
