We're blogging live all game...
The Gators should feel pretty lucky to be tied right now. Tebow has thrown two interceptions but UF's defense (and a bad call by OU coach Bob Stoops not to kick a field goal) has left this game tied 7-7 at halftime.
OU Drive 5: UF's defense continues to do just enough to keep this game tied. This time UF safety Major Wright intercepted a Sam Bradford pass on the three-yard line with three seconds left in the half. If you're counting at home, three Gators tipped the ball -- Joe Haden, Ahmad Black and Ryan Stamper -- before Black grabbed the ball out of the air.
UF Drive 4: Bad luck for the Gators on their fourth drive of the game. UF running back Chris Rainey appeared to injury his right leg at the end of a third-down pass play in the second quarter (3:31). Rainey was carted off the field with trainers holding his foot. UF's drive stalled and the Gators punted into the end zone.
OU Drive 4: Goal-line stop by the Florida Gators! Lineman Torrey Davis entered the game on third and goal and made both tackles to save UF after Tebow's second interception of the game. Florida's defense is having trouble with OU's no-huddle offense. No question about it.
UF Drive 3: Tebow was 6-of-6 on third down pass until he tossed his second interception of the night. This time, lineman Gerald McCoy dropped back into to coverage and Tebow tossed it right in his stomach. This is the first time Tebow has ever thrown two interceptions in a game.
UF 7, OU 0; 11:49 second quarter
OU Drive 3: Quite the answer by statement drive by OU to tie the game. Six plays, 65 yards and only one second-down play, which came from the UF 6 just before OU quarterback Sam Bradford tossed a perfect pass to tight end Jermaine Gresham. The drive started at the OU 35 and featured consecutive gains of 16, 14, 15, 13 yards.
UF 7, OU 0; 14:02, second quarter
UF Drive 2: Tebow to Louis Murphy for a 20-yard touchdown. Murphy was spun around by OU cornerback Dominique Franks and reached the ball over the goal line while falling down. Murphy was wide open and the pass came on third-and-nine. Florida is 5-of-5 on third-down conversions and Tebow has thrown four touchdowns passes in a row on third down. UF began the drive on its own 14 and moved down the field with a 14-yard pass play to Percy Harvin. (More evidence, I guess, that his ankle is OK.)
END OF FIRST QUARTER THOUGHT
Anyone expect a 0-0 score after the first quarter?
OU Drive 2: The Sooners begin the drive on at midfield after Nic Harris' interception return. That was Harris' first interception of the season. OU's drive was sabotaged by two terrible penalties committed by OU offensive lineman Duke Robinson. First, Robinson committed a personal foul, pushing OU the wrong way. The second penalty was a holding infraction on third-and-five from midfield. Bradford completed the pass to tight end Jermaine Gresham to the UF 5 but the long gain was called back.
UF Drive 1: Percy Harvin in the game and -- BREAKING NEWS -- guess the guy's not a decoy after all (as reported erroneously today by some). Harvin caught a pass over the middle for a 19-yard gain and a first down on the Gators first drive of the game...Drive halted suddenly when OU safety Nic Harris -- the guy who talked trash all week -- stepped in front of a pass by UF quarterback Tim Tebow. Third interception of the season for Tebow, who floated the pass intended for Riley Cooper.
OU Drive 1: Welcome to South Florida, Major Wright style! Wright, the Fort Lauderdale native, completely leveled OU wide receiver Manuel Johnson on the third offensive play of the game. Oh my, what a hit. Was it too early? OU fans thought so. Johnson never saw the hit coming and left the game. After two nice first-down passes by OU quarterback Sam Bradford, the Gators hold when Brandon Hicks made a 14-yard sack.
--Surprise, surprise. Will Hill makes the first special teams tackle of the game. That's Hill's 26th special teams tackle on the season.
--COIN TOSS: Oklahoma wins the coin toss. Florida receiver Louis Murphy was a team captain and is already talking smack with Nic Harris, OU's safety who ran his mouth this week about the Big 12.
