Florida #Gators Tim #Tebow doing what he does best, dominating Florida State

GAINESVILLE -- Tim Tebow does a lot of things well, but one of the things he does best is dominate Florida State.

One day after Alabama's Mark Ingram stumbled against Auburn, Tebow is making his case for the Heisman Trophy during the first half against FSU. Entering Saturday's game, Tebow accounted for nine touchdowns in two years against FSU. Tebow has already accounted for three touchdowns on Saturday -- one rushing and two passing -- and UF leads FSU 24-0 at halftime.

Tebow gave UF a 17-0 lead with 7:44 left in the second quarter with an 18-yard touchdown run on another excellent read out of the triple option. UF went up 24-0 with 1:07 left in the half when Tebow found tight end Aaron Hernandez on a crossing pattern for a 37-yard score. Hernandez zig-zagged through FSU's defense like he was a receiver. One of the FSU defenders to miss a tackle on Hernandez: Greg Reid, the FSU freshman cornerback who spured UF on National Signing Day in February.

Tebow's halftime stats: 13 of 16 attempts for 154 yards and two touchdowns; 10 carries for 35 yards and a touchdown.
