A day before the Florida-Georgia game kicks off in Jacksonville, legendary former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow has delivered an incredible message to the Gators as they try to pull of the upset.
Tebow spoke to reporters and delved into what he would say to the team before it took the field. Check out the clip below:

“Remember what this game is about since before you were born,” Tebow said. “Take pride in this game because you’re representing a lot of orange and blue.”
Tebow acknowledged that many people think Florida has very little chance in this game, including possibly himself, as he said that he will have to make a pick in this game and may fall into that category. But he doesn’t want that to deter his alma mater.
“You’re a Gator for a reason, play like that,” he said. “You’re not at Florida to compete — you’re at Florida to win. And go out there and prove it.”
In his four years with the Gators, Tebow secured a 3-1 record in the annual rivalry game.
The 3:30 p.m. kickoff is now just a tad more than 24 hours away. Who’s excited?!
