Saturday, November 1, 2008. (AP) -- Florida waited a year to celebrate against Georgia -- and boy did the Gators get to party.
Tim Tebow accounted for five touchdowns, Percy Harvin scored twice and the No. 5 Gators thumped the Bulldogs 49-10 Saturday in one of the most anticipated matchups in the history of this storied rivalry.
Florida (7-1, 5-1) pretty much shut down Knowshon Moreno, took advantage of Georgia's numerous mistakes and avenged last year's 42-30 loss in which the brazen Bulldogs used a massive end-zone celebration to energize their entire team.
The Gators won for the 16th time in the last 19 meetings, and this one was one of the most lopsided of all the one-sided affairs. Florida's largest margin of victory in the series was a 47-7 win in 1996.
