Florida 49, Georgia 10

<b>WHERE: </b> Jacksonville Municipal Stadium
<b>THE BUZZ: </b>The <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="ORSPT000172" title="Florida Gators" href="/topic/sports/college-sports/florida-gators-ORSPT000172.topic">Gators</a> got revenge from Georgia stomping on their end-zone logo the year before with an inspired performance. The Gators defense caused havoc all day, forcing Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford into three interceptions and running back Knowshon Moreno into a costly fumble. The Gators never trailed after <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PESPT008507" title="Percy Harvin" href="/topic/sports/football/percy-harvin-PESPT008507.topic">Percy Harvin</a> scored on a 13-yard run late in the first quarter. 
<b>KEY PLAY: </b>With Georgia surging downfield, cornerback Joe Haden jumped a route and returned an interception 88 yards, setting up a 1-yard <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PESPT008528" title="Tim Tebow" href="/topic/sports/football/tim-tebow-PESPT008528.topic">Tim Tebow</a> touchdown and a 21-3 lead. Tebow accounted for five touchdowns on the day, two passing and three rushing. Harvin's return was the fourth-longest in school history. 
<b>STARS: </b>Harvin caught a touchdown pass and rushed for another, while wide receiver Deonte Thompson caught his first career touchdown as a Gator. 
<b>STATS: </b>This was Florida's largest margin of victory in the Florida-Georgia series since a 47-7 win in 1996. 
<b>QUOTE: </b>“To me, the rules say you've got three timeouts per half. They can use as many as they want. It's in the rules. They used their timeouts, and they have a right to do that." --Georgia Coach Mark Richt about when the Gators called two late timeouts despite the 39-point lead.
