College Football: Tebow hurt in Florida’s win

Associated Press
LEXINGTON, Ky. ó In one scary moment for Tim Tebow, another Florida laugher turned into the Gators’ worst fear.
Tebow was knocked out of Florida’s 41-7 victory against Kentucky after taking a hard shot to the head in the third quarter.
The Gators were leading 31-7 and driving deep in Kentucky territory when Tebow was sacked by Kentucky defensive end Taylor Wyndham. As he fell back with Wyndham on top of him, Tebow’s head struck teammate Marcus Gilbert’s leg, violently bending his neck forward.
Tebow lay motionless for several minutes while Commonwealth Stadium fell silent. He sat up with some help then slowly made his way off the field to a loud ovation. He was eventually carted off the field with concussion-like symptoms, vomiting several times as he was taken to an ambulance to a local hospital for tests.
“I don’t know, I think it’s a concussion,” Florida coach Urban Meyer said. “I think he’ll be all right.”
The win extended Florida’s winning streak to 14 games, tops in the nation as the Gators (4-0, 2-0 SEC) continued their mastery over the Wildcats (2-1, 0-1). Florida has won 23 straight in the series, the second longest active winning streak by one team over another in the country.
