Tim Tebow ties Herschel Walker

STARKVILLE, Miss. -- UF quarterback Tim Tebow scored on a 26-yard touchdown run at the beginning of the second quarter of the Gators road game against Mississippi State on Saturday night. The touchdown gave Florida a 10-3 lead and tied Tebow with former Georgia running back Herschel Walker with all-time career rushing touchdown record in the Southeastern Conference.

Tebow has rushed for 49 touchdowns in his four-year career but none were quite like the one Saturday during the first quarter. Tebow faked a pitch then spun and ran up the middle of the field on a quarterback draw. Tebow cut to his right and outraced Mississippi State's secondary to the pylon. Tebow dove for the corner of the end zone to give Florida its first lead of the night.

FIRST QUARTER
The Gators' red zone troubles haven't went away. At least not yet, any way. The Gators missed a field goal in the first quarter (37 yards by Caleb Sturgis) and failed to score a touchdown after second and goal from the State 1.

--UF linebacker A.J. Jones picked off a Mississippi State pass during the first quarter after a Carlos Dunlap deflection. UF took over on the State 46 but the drive failed when Sturgis missed his field goal.
