Alligator Army Awards: The Albie for Best Game

Believe it or not, there were other good games played besides the football team. But, I think most of you will agree which was The Best Game.

May 31- Softball defeats Virginia Tech 2-0: Facing elimination, the Gators defeated the Hokies 2-0 in nine innings (softball plays seven). Against National Player of The Year, pitcher Angela Tincher, UF only managed five hits until two singles and a hit batsman opened the door for Florida's lone senior, Mary Ratliff. The senior lined a double, scoring two, and Florida won their record setting 68th game.

October 30- Soccer defeats South Carolina 1-0: Senior Ameera Abdullah's goal in the 80th minute gave the Gators the first ever 11-0 mark in SEC play. In SEC regular season play, the Gators had seven one-goal wins.

November 1- Football defeats Georgia 49-10: The first sign of an angry Florida trying to reclaim what they lost after the Ole Miss game. Tim Tebow had five touchdowns (3 rushing), the defense forced four turnovers and Urban Meyer ran up the score. He also called time outs to prolong Georgia's pain. It was Spurrieresque.

November 29- Football defeats Florida State 45-15: Once again, Florida was hellbent on destruction, winning their fifth straight against the Seminoles. On a sloppy field, UF ran up 317 rushing yards. But much of that was without an injured Percy Harvin. When Harvin's injury inspired cheers from the few FSU fans in attendance, Tebow rallied his team. The momentum from this game would carry on to...

December 6- Football defeats Alabama 31-20; wins SEC title: Down 20-17 at the start of the fourth quarter, Tebow led the offense on a charge that will go down in Gator history. Controlling the ball for nearly 12 minutes, Tebow accounted for 81 yards of offense and completed all five of his passes. A touchdown run by Jeff Demps put Florida out front, and after a defensive stand, Riley Cooper's touchdown catch sealed it. It was the first time in Tebow's college career he had rallied from a 4th quarter deficit.
