This weekend, the No. 25 Florida Gators welcome the No. 3 Ole Miss Rebels to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium at Florida Field in Gainesville for a battle of SEC unbeatens.
Ahead of the matchup, current Gators players are looking back at an iconic moment in Florida football history for some inspiration. Do you all remember the epic “promise” speech that came from former quarterback Tim Tebow seven years ago after his team lost to Ole Miss?
Well, the current players remember that moment and they have been watching that speech to remember just how much passion they need to take the field with.
For those who can’t remember the speech, you can watch it below.
That is the moment that pushed the Gators over the top and led them en route to a national championship win.
If the current Florida football team can channel their inner Tebow for this weekend’s matchup, they could pull off one of the biggest wins in recent program history and make some major noise in the rankings.
After all, the SEC is wide open, so remaining unbeaten and knocking off Ole Miss could be all the Gators need to spark a run at the College Football Playoff.
