From the AP via ESPN:

Florida rides Tebow, suffocating defense to another BCS title

Tim Tebow gave Florida the jolt it needed, and the Gators toughed out a second BCS title in three years.

Their 24-14 win over No. 2 Oklahoma in a choppy, sloppy affair Thursday night made them a national champion. But it likely did little to quiet fans of Southern California, Utah and Texas, all of whom already claimed the top spot.

The high-scoring shootout between Heisman Trophy winners Sam Bradford and Tebow never materialized.

Tebow, however, shook off a career-high two interceptions to rescue the top-ranked Gators (13-1). He drove them to the clinching score -- he took two hard steps toward the line, jumped and zipped a 4-yard touchdown pass to David Nelson with 3:07 to make it 24-14.

Yeah well, like I've been saying, the Big 12 should have sent Texas to face the Gators, instead. I mean, the Longhorns put up 21 points more against OU than Florida did. And when was the last time "Big Game Bob" even won a BCS bowl, let alone a national championship?

This will go down as one of the great American cultural travesties.
